The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. expanded our Contract Management Support (CMS) program with a new location in Falls Church, Virginia. Matthew Diharce, Contract Closeout Specialist, is one of the first employees to work there.

The Lighthouse has been providing CMS services for more than 20 years, helping businesses and government agencies meet their contractual obligations while also creating job opportunities for people who are blind or visually impaired. The program offers a range of services, including contract administration, customer service, and supply chain management.

Matthew, who has Retinitis Pigmentosa, was thrilled to join the team at the new location. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to work for an organization that values inclusivity,” he said. “And being part of the CMS program means that I can use my skills to help others succeed while also developing my own career.”

The new CMS location is a testament to the success of the program and the growing demand for its services.

“We’re excited to see the CMS program expand and to welcome new employees like Matthew to the team,” says Melanie Wimmenauer, Vice President of Service Business and AbilityOne Base Supply Centers. “Our goal is to provide high-quality services while also making a positive impact in our community, and we’re confident that this new location will help us achieve both.”
