Filling the Technology Need
As we continue to see changing needs for the Partner families in our Self-Sufficiency Program, we are very excited to announce that, due to wonderful community support, we have been able to provide all the families in our program with updated computers and internet service. The funding received will cover the costs of internet so families can work from home, attend school remotely when needed, and connect with us and other service providers. Helping our families overcome the “digital divide” has been a goal we are so happy to have reached!
From a partner who received a computer:
“We are so thankful for the computer that was given to our family, it has everything we needed! I am able to work from home doing online booking for a local report. My oldest son suffers from some significant mental health issues and can now use or old computer, which was not working for my job, to stay busy and happy. My junior high school age daughter is doing school online so the school provided computer is dedicated to her schoolwork. I never thought we would all be home during the days and have the ability to do all of these things. Thank you to Partners in Housing for our home during these crazy times and for the tools we need to make everything work!”
