Technology offers many opportunities to individuals with disabilities. We recognize that not everyone is able to purchase a new computer. With he generosity of the local community we are able to supply refurbished home computers to individuals with disabilities who can not otherwise afford one for a small fee. A working home computer facilitates social connection, the ability to apply for support programs, and the freedom to pursue education or work opportunities.

If you have a disability and do not have reasonable access to a home computer and would benefit from having one we encourage you to apply. Parents/guardians can apply for a computer on behalf of their disabled children or an adult with a disability if the adult is unable to apply for themselves.
What will I receive?

You will receive a desktop computer with a monitor, tower, keyboard, and mouse. Printers may be available for individuals with a demonstrated need. If you
