The Community Intervention Center of Lackawanna County is pleased to announce that it has received a Nine Thousand Dollar grant from the Scranton Area Community Foundation. These funds will support the Community Intervention Center’s new computer lab for our clients.
This grant was requested for a project entitled “Bridging the Digital Divide.” It will supply clients with an on-site 4 station computer lab to better their own health, housing needs and economic opportunities. This project is intended to help marginalized individuals build crucial computer skills, gain access to information, enable easy access to applications for public benefits, assist with resume building along with housing and employment searches. It will also offer greater access to educational opportunities such as online learning and college course. It will afford greater access to health and wellness programming such as access to health and medical records and online medication education. Also, often, computer access is the only mode of contact our clients have to reach out to family members who may be in other areas of the country. This alone gives them a way to stay in touch with the world.
