About OLSHF & the Lions of Oregon
The Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation (OLSHF) serves communities statewide. We are driven by a promise made to American author and deaf blind activist Helen Keller. In 1925, at an International Lions Convention, she challenged Lions to focus on preventable sight and hearing issues as their primary mission. Since our formation in 1959, we have endeavored to uphold this promise by creating programs in response to the need for sight and hearing assistance. We have built upon the promise made to Helen Keller by creating a continuum of care for people who lack access to vision and hearing services.
In partnership with the Lions Clubs of Oregon and community organizations, we serve people through critical sight saving surgeries and treatments; manufacturing new eyeglasses; helping people who can’t afford eyeglasses and hearing aids, and creating the most efficient and effective school vision screening program in the US. Our statewide programs serve children to the elderly, giving them much needed access to optical and hearing services. OLSHF’s 20/20 Vision School Vision Screening Program is slated to provide state-of-the-art, safe and equitable vision screening to 200,000 or more Oregon students this coming school year with referrals for underserved student families for low cost/no cost vision exams and eyeglasses.
