What Our Employees Say . . .

Our Organization

South Texas Lighthouse is a 501(c)(3) charitable, not-for-profit organization that provides many opportunities for people who are blind to be productive and independent. Our mission is to Employ, Educate, and Empower our neighbors with vision loss. We employ individuals who are blind and/or visually impaired to give them a means to be independent and through our upward mobility program they have an opportunity to move into higher positions of management. We educate our communities on blind etiquette and work together to create an environment that is safe and accessible to not only persons who are blind or visually disabled but to those that have other disabilities as well. Through this work we also strive to empower our employees to achieve their goals and continue living life with hope, optimism, and determination.

- Daniel Salinas, Base Store Associate

Every chance I get, I educate our customers about Skillcraft products. Many of our customers do not know that when they buy a Skillcraft product, they are helping us fulfill our mission and providing jobs for people who are blind or visually impaired.

South Texas Lighthouse for the Blind also operates six Base Supply Stores and HazMat operations on several military bases spanning from Mississippi to Hawaii along with an e-commerce website. Your purchases through our ecommerce site also helps provide employment opportunities for those who are blind or visually impaired. The stores sell items produced by some of the other 90 agencies across the country that employ persons who are blind or severely disabled, with a wide variety of items offered office supplies to furniture.

Message from the CEO

As I reflect on the history of South Texas Lighthouse for the Blind (STLB), I am extremely proud of how far we have come since our humble beginnings in 1964. Today, we employ over 175 individuals in the areas of manufacturing, retail, and administration and have operations throughout the United States. Our manufacturing division provides employment opportunities with competitive wages and a comprehensive benefit package. With two manufacturing facilities in Corpus Christi and Victoria, we produce a variety of products for the military, federal, and state governments. Our Office Product lines include index tabs, 350 varieties of binders, mouse pads, and envelopes. Our Sewn Product department manufactures pilots and tactical gloves, as well as chinstraps for the military. In addition, we package and supply a variety of office products and janitorial supplies to the State of Texas. Our manufacturing facility is one of the first among non-profits like ours to be certified in the ISO9000 Quality Management System.

As the President and CEO of South Texas Lighthouse for the Blind, I am proud to work for an organization that has a profound impact on the community, and I look forward to being a part of what the future holds for this company and those of whom we serve. Working together, we will be the champion for those affected by vision loss.
