Parent Testimonials

  • "Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful work that you do with my son Erick. May God bless him."
    - Greila


  • "Miami Lighthouse for the Blind has changed the lives of my family and our daughter. Without your support and constant encouragement, raising an infant who is visually impaired would be overwhelming, scary and clouded with sadness. Instead, our family feels privileged to be able to be
    a part of this incredible organization, thanks to our daughter. She is currently enrolled at the school
    and has participated in the infant programs – the effort and individual attention you provide to the families and students goes beyond an individual
    job description and salary – the drive comes solely from their passion to service those who are often overlooked in our society. I cannot thank you
    enough for your dedication."
    - Lisa Jess
