Wayfinder Moment: Golden Gate Bridge

Congratulations to Jon, a recent graduate of Wayfinder’s Hatlen Center in San Pablo, Calif. The Hatlen Center is an immersive residential program for adults with vision loss, who gain skills to live independently. After seven months in the program, Jon was ready to take his final exam. He chose to travel by himself to meet his instructor on the Golden Gate Bridge. He walked to the bus stop, took a bus to the BART train station, and another bus to the bridge—all independently. “It felt spectacular,” Jon says. “It felt like the proper way to end the program.”
