What is Connect Home USA?
ConnectHomeUSA (once called “Connect Home” when launched in 2015) is a nationwide collaboration to get computers, training and low-cost broadband internet to all people separated from our digital world due to low income. We know that computer literacy leads to a better life by simply being connected to the world at broadband internet speeds. Two Western Pennsylvania regions were selected into the 2017 ConnectHomeUSA program:
- Allegheny County Housing Authority/Housing Authority City of Pittsburgh/City of Pittsburgh
- Westmoreland County Housing Authority
Computer Reach is a stakeholder in ConnectHomeUSA supplying computers and training to Western Pennsylvania by way of our innovative Computer Camps at libraries, community centers and workforce development sites. HUD and Section 8 residents referred by housing authorities are offered 8 hour computer camps ( four 2-hour labs ) to earn home desktop computers and a chance to earn Digital Literacy Certificates and Badges to be used as additional tools for job and college applications.
