Stephanie Guillen Joins Sights for Hope as Bilingual Client Caseworker

Stephanie Guillen has joined the Sights for Hope team as its bilingual Client Caseworker in the Lehigh Valley.

Guillen comes to Sights for Hope from Catholic Charities – where she worked as a counselor, visitation worker, and family specialist – and she has worked in the social services sector since 2013. She has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Cedar Crest College.

Caseworkers guide clients with visual impairments to services that meet their personal goals, monitor client progress, arrange for one-on-one instruction, and make referrals. Caseworkers also conduct home visits, during which they can help a client read mail, write checks, manage finances, and complete forms. Caseworkers also can perform basic home repairs to ensure a client’s safety.

Guillen will work primarily with Sights for Hope’s Spanish-speaking clients in Lehigh and Northampton counties.

Sights for Hope, known formerly as Center for Vision Loss, blends a service tradition inspired directly by Helen Keller in 1928 with contemporary practices to remove the barriers to independence and success caused by visual impairments. Sights for Hope empowers people with visual impairments in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley and Monroe County to thrive through skills education, specialized technologies, individualized support services, free vision screenings for children, and prevention education programs.
