Stephanie’s Story

When Stephanie Jefferson first came to Lighthouse Guild, her life was at a crossroads. She was losing her sight, preparing to go back to college, and afraid.

“When I first walked through these doors I thought my life was coming to an end because I was losing my sight,” remembers Stephanie. But with college preparatory assistance from our Adaptive Technology Center, she embarked on a new journey at Lehman College in the Bronx.

With renewed energy, Stephanie graduated summa cum laude with a degree in social work and set out to inspire others. Now, more than a decade after her first visit, Stephanie has returned for more training – to learn how to navigate the web, and improve her computer skills.
