Vision Bermuda will be hosting a grand reopening of Beacon House on April 6th, saying this “momentous event marks a new chapter in our journey to empower individuals with vision impairments as Beacon House stands as a beacon of hope, innovation and community spirit.”

A spokesperson said, “Beacon House has undergone extensive renovations and despite challenges, much due to the widespread disruptions and impact of the Covid pandemic, our vision has been unwavering. Today, we celebrate not just the reopening of a building, but the renewal of a promise to serve and support each person affected by vision loss in Bermuda.

“The newly renovated Beacon House will serve as a focal point, offering innovative training sessions and personalized instruction in the latest assistive technologies, ensuring that every individual has the tools to navigate the world confidently. Complete accessibility features make Beacon House a safe haven for socializing, learning, and growing together, while our location lends itself perfectly for training in the use of public transportation and safe navigation through the City of Hamilton.

“Our journey to this day has been supported by the generosity of our donors, the dedication of local and international Lions Clubs, and the hard work of countless professionals and tradespeople, many giving their services in kind. The Lions Clubs International, inspired by Helen Keller’s challenge in 1925 to be the “Knights of the Blind” have been instrumental in making this dream a reality through their unwavering support and a significant matching grant. This collaboration underscores a shared commitment to serving the community and sets the stage for even closer cooperation in the future.

“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has contributed to this remarkable achievement. Your support has lit the path to a brighter future for those with vision loss in Bermuda. We invite you to join us in celebrating this significant milestone and to witness firsthand the incredible impact of Beacon House on the lives of individuals with vision impairments. Together, we will continue to illuminate the path forward, inspired by the belief that every challenge can be overcome with perseverance, innovation, and community spirit.

“Vision Bermuda is dedicated to serving anyone whose vision loss impacts their daily activities, as well as their families, caregivers, and professionals interested in vision impairment. Our mission is to help people with no and low vision maintain independence, learn new skills, and participate in social and physical activities to reduce loneliness and isolation.
