Both Lighthouse and Lighthouse Works currently employ more than 25 people who are blind and visually impaired—approximately 40 percent of their total staff. These talented individuals deliver a variety of services, including call center and supply chain operations. Both organizations have trained countless others for positions in integrated workplaces among sighted co-workers, in multiple industries.

The sourcing solutions and fulfillment division at Lighthouse Works fulfills more than $2.5 million in government funded contracts annually. Since its inception in 2011, this division has consistently received a satisfaction rating in the high 98 percentile from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA)—its latest satisfaction score was 100 percent, which led to Lighthouse Works being recognized with the Outstanding AbilityOne Program Vendor award. Among the products supplied by Lighthouse Works include First Aid/Aircrew 1200 kits for the U.S. Air Force and Combat Life Saver kits for the U.S. Army.
