More than half of all people who are blind or vision impaired are over the age of 50, and the seniors’ population is expected to double within the next 30 years. The San Antonio Lighthouse Seniors Program is an important community resource that provides a wide range of services to assist this growing population. Since its creation, the Seniors Program has been growing steadily, and today the program serves more than 3500 individuals annually.

The San Antonio Lighthouse for the Blind & Vision Impaired offers seniors who are experiencing various degrees of vision loss the opportunity to remain independent and active through five program services. These program services are sponsored free of charge to qualifying seniors who are enrolled in the program.
