2006 Report to the Community

Annual Report

The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc.

and The Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind Foundation

Opportunity. Independence. Self-sufficiency.

 

Message from the Board Chair

As one of the largest employers of blind and Deaf-Blind people in the country, The Lighthouse for the Blind must meet an exceptional challenge each year ─ to further its mission of creating opportunities for people with visual disabilities while meeting its financial bottom line. This past year, Lighthouse employees, board members, volunteers, and community donors worked together to successfully increase opportunities here at the Lighthouse while strengthening our long-term financial success. 

Our employment opportunities for people with visual disabilities jumped from 154 to 169 in 2006. We added 15 new blind and Deaf-Blind employees to our roster while strengthening our financial position by ramping up Lighthouse manufacturing lines. In spring 2006 we began production on a major new line: the canteen cup. With the addition of the cup, The Lighthouse has become sole supplier of the three-part canteen line to the federal government.

Our contract with The Boeing Company yielded greater work opportunities as well. Our Boeing contract work increased by 25%, thereby creating new, high-skilled jobs for the blind and Deaf-Blind workforce. Many dedicated Lighthouse employees worked overtime to meet the demands of our increased workload. I extend my heartfelt thanks to the production and machining teams for commitment to their work.

The Lighthouse team also dedicated themselves to creating opportunities for upward mobility and career development for adults with visual disabilities. One of the key factors in career advancement is on-going training. In this digital age, computer training is particularly important. I am pleased to announce that the Lighthouse opened a new Computer Training Program for blind adults offering vocational courses on assistive technology, Office applications, and the Internet.

In 2006, we rolled out the Leaders at All Levels business training program. This training offered an organization-wide opportunity for employees to strengthen their business skills. For blind employees interested in attaining a deeper level of business management competency, we sponsor training through National Industries for the Blind’s Business Management Training program. This is the second year that Lighthouse staff members have participated in this intensive, 14-month program.

This past year was also a time of preparation and new opportunities. President George Jacobson announced his retirement date of January 2008, and the board immediately began a search for the new Lighthouse President. In September, we announced that General Manager of Administration Kirk Adams accepted the position of president-elect.

As head of the search committee, I was privileged to offer this job to someone with not only exceptional leadership skills, but also an outstanding dedication to our mission. Under Kirk’s leadership, I have every confidence that The Lighthouse for the Blind will continue to thrive and to be a touchstone for the blind and Deaf-Blind communities.

In the year ahead, The Lighthouse team will work together to ensure a successful transition while continuing to fulfill our mission. George Jacobson, Kirk Adams, and the Lighthouse board will work closely together to implement a comprehensive succession plan that ensures the health of our organization and maintains a commitment to the people we serve. I am proud to work with an organization that demonstrates such a firm investment in its future and its mission.

Thanks to all of you who have dedicated yourself to providing opportunities for people who are blind, Deaf-Blind, and blind with other disabilities to live independently and succeed. I look forward to working with you in the year ahead.

Douglas M. Klan, Board Chairman

 

 

Our Mission

To create and enhance opportunities for independence and self-sufficiency of people who are blind, Deaf-Blind, and blind with other disabilities.

 

Building Employment Opportunities

“Working at the Lighthouse gives me a real sense of worth. It builds your self-esteem being able to set up your own jobs and meet the challenges. The gift of a job is a gift of self-reliance and financial security.”  -- Dan Staub, Machine Set-Up

Lighthouse Employment FY 2006

With the national unemployment rate for blind adults at 70%, our mission focus is on providing employment opportunities and training to people who are blind, Deaf-Blind, and blind with other disabilities.

In FY 2006, blind and Deaf-Blind adults filled 15 new jobs for a total of 169 employees with visual disabilities.  The 169 Lighthouse jobs filled by blind and Deaf-Blind employees include production worker, machinist, department lead, customer service representative, human resources coordinator, administrative assistant, business analyst, government affairs specialist, technology training instructor, community class coordinator, and president-elect.

Career Training

Leaders at all Levels: In 2006, The Lighthouse for the Blind commenced Leaders at All Levels classes with the goal of increasing upward mobility for all employees. This curriculum was selected by National Industries for the Blind from the worldwide education company AchieveGlobal. The program’s five modules consist of Work Skills: the Basic Principles, Helping Your Team Work, Positive Responses to Change, Getting the Information You Need, and Speaking with Confidence. A total of 229 Lighthouse employees participated in Leaders at All Levels trainings.

Machine Shop Peer Training Program: In our machine shop, blind senior machinists provide in-depth machining training to new employees. The peer training program includes comprehensive, documented procedures for each machine with supporting materials available in alternate formats such as braille and large print. The training covers the immediate shop environment, orientation of the machine equipment, safety features and procedures, set-up, and equipment operation. Trainees undergo an assessment period and receive feedback on their progress.

Tooling University: Lighthouse machine shop employees have the option of enrolling in online Tooling University classes supplemental to hands-on training. Class subjects include shop essentials, blueprints, intermediate and advanced mathematics, CNC machining, and the latest machining and blueprint updates.

Business Management Training: Providing a major opportunity for upward mobility of blind individuals, the Business Management Training (BMT) program offers Lighthouse employees in-depth leadership training. The University of Virginia's Darden Graduate School of Business Administration facilitates this challenging, participant-centered program. For the past two years, three Lighthouse employees desiring a more in-depth knowledge of business management have completed the program.

Employee and Community Services

In 2006 we finalized our Deaf-Blind Program strategic planning process and initiated the planning process for services offered to blind adults.  The full plan is available upon request.  The ECS planning process is focused on the services we provide to blind and developmentally-disabled blind individuals. This process began in November 2006 and wrapped up in February 2007. We are currently reviewing input from our stakeholders and developing recommendations for future service.

In addition to completing our Deaf-Blind strategic planning process and launching our ECS strategic plan, we achieved the following:

We opened our pilot Computer Training Program for blind adults in fall 2006 with 26 individuals completing the pre-qualifying exam for training.

Orientation and Mobility specialists delivered a high number of service hours, 1686, to 148 blind and Deaf-Blind individuals.

Our Orientation and Mobility staff maintained our excellent relationship with Metro Transit Services through the delivery of timely and high quality services to Metro riders. Metro has been so pleased with our services that they are seeking funding to continue our partnership in the next biennium.

We expanded our Housing Support Services to meet the needs of blind employees relocating to Seattle. Our priority is serving blind and Deaf-Blind adults relocating to work at the Lighthouse.

Jodie O’Flaherty became the new supervisor to our Supported Employment Program for blind and Deaf-Blind adults with developmental disabilities.

 

Jackie Matthews filled the position of Interpreting Services supervisor. Jackie has worked as a certified interpreter for over 20 years in the Seattle Deaf-Blind community.

 

We streamlined our interpreter scheduling process by launching a new web-based scheduling program, Gridcheck, allowing our interpreting department to operate more efficiently and effectively.

 

We filled three essential staff positions: Karen Park joined our staff as Deaf-Blind Community Class coordinator, Joey Graff joined ECS as training and development coordinator, and Suzette Ledet became our Deaf-Blind employee support specialist & recruiter.

 

Five American Sign Language interpreting students completed Lighthouse internships in 2006. Each one of them has continued to stay in touch and support our programs

 

Deaf-Blind Community Class offered valuable information on a range of topics including: Emergency Preparedness, Election Issues, and Self Defense. The Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing provided an update about their services for Deaf Blind people. Best of all was a series of travel stories from Deaf-Blind people who traveled to Hawaii, Africa, and Israel.  

 

We hosted Carol Padden, an internationally known Deaf linguist/anthropologist, at Community Class. She gave us a special, informal lecture and the whole community was enthralled, particularly with her beautiful American Sign Language (ASL) and extensive knowledge and background. We hope to make this kind of event an annual tradition!

 

We provided 16 Group Technology Training Classes to the Deaf-Blind Community during spring in addition to our regular one-on-one classes. These were very successful and popular.

 

The following programs are part of the Employee and Community Services (ECS) Department:

 

Supported Employment Program

Computer Training Program

Orientation, Mobility and Housing Services

Interpreting Services

Deaf-Blind Program

This year has been a time of planning for the future while meeting current service demands. We have seen a surge in services delivered to the community. As a result, we have redefined staff positions, offered new services, improved systems, and added new staff to our team.

President’s Award Winner: Ophelia Arellano

Born in the Philippines, Ophelia Arellano followed her brother to the United States and to The Lighthouse for the Blind. She started working at the Lighthouse in July of 1985 in the sewing department, making such items as sleeping bags for fire fighters.

When she heard about a job opening up in the canteen area, her colleagues encouraged her to apply. Though she was nervous about her English skills, she overcame her fear and attained the job. She has now worked in the canteen area for 16 years, eventually becoming a lead.

“The first time I won the President’s Award was in 1996 and I was really surprised then. To win the award a second time really makes me happy and even more surprised,” she says. “The Lighthouse has given me so many opportunities. I love working here because where I came from -- in the Philippines -- the work opportunities were not there especially without a college degree.

She concludes, “I now know that, if you have patience, all things come to you in due time. If you want to work, the work is there.”

President’s Award candidates are nominated by co-workers, then selected by the Lighthouse President prior to the employee awards ceremony. President George Jacobson chose Ophelia because of her outstanding commitment and kindness. “Ophelia is hard working and committed to the Lighthouse mission. She’s very popular with everyone who works in production,” George says. “She’s helpful, understands the needs of the people she works with, and she’s empathetic as heck!”

 

 

Employee of the Year: Serzh Nikolayev

Machinist, musician, and technical wizard, 2006 Employee of the Year Serzh Nikolayev is a man of many talents. His story spans two continents and a colorful career leading to The Lighthouse for the Blind.

Serzh grew up in Azerbaijan in the former Soviet Union. Though he was born with macular degeneration, he was not diagnosed as legally blind until age 13. The macula is responsible for central vision, and erodes over time in people with macular degeneration. Today, Serzh has no remaining central vision but retains his peripheral vision.

Growing up, he discovered a passion for all things mathematical and technical. He attended a local electrical & technical engineering college. Upon graduating, he accepted a job with the county police department repairing alarm systems.

While working as a technician, Serzh pursued his passion for music on the side.  He is an accomplished musician, playing keyboards and several types of guitar. When pressures in the police department to join the Communist Party became too much to bear, music provided a way out. Serzh left the police department and became a full-time professional musician. He traveled the countryside with a group of fellow musicians around the Soviet Union playing at weddings, banquets, and concert halls.

Serzh toured with his band until starting work in a concrete block factory in 1989. Political and civil unrest had been growing steadily and war broke out between local factions shortly thereafter. He fled Azerbaijan to Moscow with his wife Natalie and son Roman shortly after the start of the civil war.

As the Soviet Union teetered on the brink of collapse, the U.S. and Soviet governments agreed to allow refugees to immigrate to America for the first time ever. On May 9, 1991, Serzh and ten of his family members arrived in Seattle. A stream of relatives soon followed. Today Serzh has 65 family members living mostly in the Renton area. After living and working in the United States for many years, Serzh became a citizen in 1997.

We all know the barriers that face people with visual disabilities searching for work, for Serzh this was compounded by the fact that he did not speak English . The immigration office researched the options for Serzh and found the Lighthouse.   He started work here on August 12, 1991 three months after arriving in the U.S.

The Lighthouse provided Serzh with an interpreter eight hours a day for the first two weeks of employment. While he did not take formal English classes, Serzh became fluent in English little by little with the help of his Lighthouse colleagues.

In 1998, Serzh transferred from production work to the Lighthouse machine shop.  He immediately took to the job, enjoying both the mental challenge and the opportunity to hone his technical skills.

He continues to sharpen his technical abilities, recently completing over 45 online Tooling University classes. Thanks to his commitment to constantly improving his machining proficiency, Serzh is one of our premiere CNC machinists.

As The Seattle Lighthouse’s Employee of the Year, Serzh is also our nominee for the National Industries for the Blind (NIB) Peter J. Salmon Career Achievement Award. This honor is given for leadership in the blindness field to a blind employee working in a direct labor position for a NIB associated agency.  Serzh will represent the Seattle Lighthouse at the NIB National Convention in Chicago, Illinois this fall.

“I appreciate winning the award because it lets me know that my coworkers respect me,” Serzh says. “People here ¾ I feel like they’re family. I come to work and it’s like my home here.”

Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind Foundation Report

Message from the Foundation Chairman

Thank you to our supporters for helping to create and enhance opportunities for people who are blind, Deaf-Blind, and blind with other disabilities.

Our mission at The Lighthouse for the Blind centers on creating opportunities for people who are blind, Deaf-Blind, and blind with other disabilities to lead independent, self-sufficient lives. We couldn’t succeed in our mission without your support. As the 2006 Chairman of the Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind Foundation, I am proud to be part of such a generous group of people dedicated to creating opportunities for blind and Deaf-Blind people to succeed.

Community donors like you have helped make great strides towards the goal of supporting all Lighthouse training programs and support services through community donations.  Generous financial contributions from individuals and organizations had a tremendous impact on sustaining and growing our programs this past year. I am pleased to report that revenues from philanthropic donations to the Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind Foundation increased by 43% with gift totals rising from $284,188 in 2005 to over $489,707 in 2006.

In December of 2002, we announced the formation of the Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind Foundation as the fundraising arm of The Ligthouse for the Blind, Inc. Our sole purpose is to gather and steward community support to further the Lighthouse mission. We accomplish this through raising annual operating funds for our programs and services as well as building an endowment fund to support the Lighthouse mission in perpetuity.

Our long-term goal is to gather enough community support to cover all training program and support service costs. Not only will this help us to better serve the blind and Deaf-Blind communities through our programs, it will also allow all of our earned income to go directly into increasing Lighthouse employment opportunities for people with visual disabilities.

By making an investment in the Lighthouse, the donors on the following pages expanded and sustained significant training opportunities for blind and Deaf-Blind members of our community and allowed earned income revenues to go back into operations –-- directly resulting in new Lighthouse jobs for blind and Deaf-Blind individuals.

In 2006, philanthropic contributions funded a range of crucial programs and services including:

As you can see, community support is integral to funding our programs and creating new opportunities for people who are blind, Deaf-Blind, and blind with other disabilities. In the years ahead, we expect philanthropy to play an increasing role in furthering our mission and serving the community. To all of you who have made an investment in the Lighthouse mission, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Patrick W. Sullivan, Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind Foundation Chairman

Lighthouse Legacy Society

The Lighthouse Legacy Society honors individuals designating planned gifts to the Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind Foundation. Examples of planned giving arrangements including designating a bequest to the Foundation in their will or arranging a Charitable Gift Annuity in partnership with the Lighthouse.

The only requirement for membership in the Lighthouse Legacy Society is written notification of a planned gift. Those providing such written notification before April 2, 2008 will enter the Lighthouse Legacy Society as charter members.

Unless otherwise designated by the donor, these gifts are typically placed in the Foundation’s permanent endowment fund, where principal remains intact in perpetuity, and earnings are used each year to support Lighthouse programs.

We extend our deepest thanks to the following generous and forward thinking individuals for making a magnificent investment in ensuring permanent opportunities for people who are blind, Deaf-Blind, and blind with other disabilities.
