The Lighthouse Center for Vital Living has moved to downtown Duluth. They are now located at 309 W 1st Street, across from the YMCA.

The non-profit is grateful for the generosity of the founders of Lake Superior Consulting, who donated the building to them.

It’s twice the space and will allow them to modernize and diversify their services.

Plus, it’s downtown, which is near many other non-profits. And the landscape provides plenty of practice areas for getting around.

“There are so many crossings to work with. And our students feel so accomplished,” added Rebecca Kalas, who is an instructor with Vision Rehabilitation Therapy and Orientation and Mobility.

They help older adults and people with disabilities live more independently, be safer, connect to family and community, and do the things in life important to them.

One exciting addition they’ll have at the new location is a demonstration space for some of the 800 items in their Assistive Technology Library.

“Hopefully people can come and check things out. Usually we go out to folks and do service demonstrations and trials in their home,” explained Greta Link, the Assistive Technology Specialist.

You can use the valet service in the front for parking. Plus there are other options.

Expect an open house later this fall.
