Based in San Francisco, LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired is a nonprofit organization serving the blind community through education, training, and advocacy. The organization serves individuals not only in California, but also nationwide and around the world.
This partnership represents a watershed moment in mobility accessibility. LightHouse For the Blind has worked as an advocate for people who are blind and visually impaired since 1902, long before the first computer was built. As time passed and new technologies emerged, LightHouse for the Blind has been at the forefront of advocating for and facilitating the use of that technology to help those who are blind and visually impaired live the best lives possible.
“We at the LightHouse are thrilled about this partnership. Our core belief is that independence skills and technology form the foundation for success in every facet of life for people who are blind and have low vision. It’s great to find that core belief being echoed in the work Waymo is doing,” said LightHouse CEO Bryan Bashin.
