Providing an Essential Service

Utilizing Lighthouse of SWFL’s Fleet of Vehicles

Florida Department of Transportation

This is a unique and targeted part of the services provided specifically for blind and low vision clients who cannot drive or have other transportation barriers. Clients seek our vision rehabilitation services to aid in developing coping and independent living skills, thus enabling and empowering them to utilize public transportation and alternative means for mobility as they adapt to living with blindness or low vision.

Our transportation program is essential in getting our clients to their initial appointments, as well as classes with our certified instructors who work with the clients to develop their individualized service plans and set goals for independence. In Lee County alone, for calendar year 2022, 611 client trips were made in Lighthouse of SWFL fleet vehicles!
