Sights for Hope traces its existence to 1928 when Lions Clubs formed two agencies in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh and Northampton counties at the direct urging of legendary teacher and activist Helen Keller. The Northampton County agency, which had expanded services to Monroe County, was consolidated into the original Lehigh County agency in 2010, The organization changed its name from Center for Vision Loss to Sights for Hope on April 6.
