Our Motto:

"Creating Jobs-Changing Lives"

Our Mission:

The Lighthouse exists to serve people who are blind or visually impaired with job training and competitive employment.  We teach them skills which they can use here or elsewhere to support themselves and their families.  We encourage them to accept personal responsibility for their economic well being and social development.  This promotes individual independence and self-reliance.

Our Vision:

Our vision is to improve the quality of life for individuals who are blind or visually impaired through job opportunities that will lead to enhanced dignity and increased independence.

About the Lighthouse:

Throughout the history and growth of the Lighthouse, we strive to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers.  This has ranged from specialty pens for the Federal Government to providing work gloves for the State of Texas.  The Lighthouse takes great pride in its commitment to making earth friendly products.  We make various types of pens from post consumer recycled plastic, bio-degradable pens and highlighters.

The West Texas Lighthouse is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization which is affiliated with the National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and Texas Industries for the Blind and Handicapped (TIBH).  We receive no financial assistance from any public or government entity.  Our income is based almost solely on the products we make and sell.  We do, however, accept monetary donations and have Friends of the Lighthouse who are long time contributors.
