Our Founder’s Anthony and Genevieve R. Abraham were true believer in the mission of the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind. My father so admired its amazing President & CEO, Virginia Jacko whom he believed was a God given miracle put on this earth to shine the Light Of Hope for those stricken with the ever lasting sphere of darkness. It was his belief that Virginia Jacko was truly the right person to steer this amazing organization on a path to international greatness by the implementation of their many breakthrough innovations in the search for curing blindness.
It has been our boards stated mission to continue our Founders legacy in supporting the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind by our unwavering Dedication, Commitment and Support in helping Virginia Jacko and her amazing organization continue in their mission to provide vision rehabilitation, eye health services and education that promote independence, to collaborate with and train professionals, and to conduct research in related fields.
