Adult Living Skills Program for the Blind


A graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Judge Megan Goldish serves on the domestic violence court of the Circuit Court of Cook County. Judge Megan Goldish also takes part in philanthropic activities and supports nonprofit organizations such as the Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind

The Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind is a social service organization that aims to improve and provide vision care to the blind and visually impaired. The organization created the adult living skills program, which aims to increase the independence and self-sufficiency of people who are blind or visually impaired and cannot perform the usual tasks of everyday life. It is a program meant to prepare people to live by themselves and return to society. It involves an on-site apartment in which patients can do activities such as dishwashing, sweeping, cleaning, and cooking. Patients can also recycle and develop working skills in the program.

The program also teaches functional and basic academics such as everyday math and how to deal with and manage money. Patients are taught the Braille language and can learn how to read and write using it.
