We work, not only to bridge the digital divide in our own neighborhoods, but also to help close the technology gap in the rest of the country. Over 15% of the nation’s households do not own any sort of computer including smartphones, and over 25% of the population does not have any form of Internet access at home. We provide low-cost computers to disadvantaged individuals across the U.S. and provide nonprofits with the technology resources they need through our computer grant program and nonprofit store.
