The LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired for 2020/2021!


For 2020/2021, Alhouse Deaton has adopted the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired. To give back to the San Francisco Bay area which has given us so much, we have selected a not-for-profit whose community-minded focus is very much in line with Alhouse Deaton's mindset for our community and our business.


We believe that especially in this time of COVID-19, in order for our cities to grow and thrive, all of our citizens must be supported. In order to move our valuable mission forward and for this reason, Alhouse Deaton has selected LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired for 2020/2021.


LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired provides education, training, advocacy, and community for blind individuals in California and around the world.



At Enchanted Hills, blind people of all ages and backgrounds have the chance to grow and challenge themselves in an environment where it’s okay to take risks.


As part of Lighthouse for the Blind's dedication to increasing blind employment, we also operate a manufacturing plant in San Leandro where 70% of the workforce are blind people diversifying the output and growth of several for-profit business ventures.

Our Mission

Thank you from the CEO for the support through the pandemic.



Programs offered by San Francisco's LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired are as follows:

  • The Holman Prize for Blind Ambition

  • Lighthouse for Little Learner

Some of their programs include training on cutting-edge accessible technology, how to move gracefully and effectively with a cane, social and recreational activities, accessible map and graphic design, braille instruction, as well as science, math, music and many other camps for blind youth and adults in the rolling hills of Napa.

Holman Prize Winners

Here at the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco, we believe whole-heartedly in encouraging and nurturing the “can-do” attitude within the blind community. Reinforcing independence and confidence is our mission.


In 2017, We launched the Holman Prize which awards three blue-sky thinkers who are blind or have low vision up to $25,000 to realize a big idea.
