Today our service area stretches across 11 counties of North Texas, encompassing over 7600 square miles serving 150,000 blind and visually impaired. Additionally, we are the largest employer of people who are blind and visually impaired in North Texas; manufacturing and assembling over 300 items right here in Dallas. The Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind also provides assistive training and client support services to thousands in the community. Given the growth projections of North Texas, our client population is expected to double to 300,000 in the next 10 years. Statistically, 60% of U.S. people blind and visually impaired are unemployed, 30% live below poverty. We recognize we still have a great challenge before us!
