JoEllen Ross"My husband after receiving services from Lighthouse, went back to work as a lawyer. I know how great blind employees can be. And if you want to be inspired, come witness for yourself our hard workers at Works!. Not only do our employees do a terrific job for our customers, they are also helping to fund Lighthouse so others can receive blind or low vision services. Having been a Board member since the infancy of Works!, I am proud to say the vision of this entity is now being realized."
