Mission Statement

To screen, treat, save, and restore sight and hearing, in partnership with Lions Clubs, in order to prevent blindness and deafness for those in need.

Vision Statement

The vision of the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation is to help more children and adults to see and hear.

History

Since 1959, the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation has taken an active role in protecting the health of Oregonians. Through seven direct service programs related to sight, hearing and health assistance, the Foundation has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of youths and adults in our state.  We offer consistent access and critical health solutions to the most vulnerable members of our community who are uninsured or under insured.

We believe it is crucial to reach out to underserved populations, particularly where geography, language or cultural barriers may present challenges to accessing preventative care and appropriate follow up. 

Join us in fulfilling the vision of our Founders and Lions:  To provide life changing sight, hearing and health assistance in your community!

Will you not help me hasten the day when there shall be no preventable blindness; no little deaf, blind child untaught; no blind man or woman unaided? I appeal to you Lions, you who have your sight, your hearing, you who are strong and brave and kind. Will you not constitute yourselves Knights of the Blind in this crusade against darkness?
