Our eBay Store is Online
Computer Reach is now selling items on our eBay page, including refurbished mobile devices, networking equipment (switches, access points, etc.), and high-end computers that are too expensive to sell locally. Devices will be distributed across the United States.

Computer Reach is looking to hire a full-time Digital Navigator Manager to oversee, schedule, and lead the program’s Digital Navigators whose responsibilities are to provide 1:1 support to Computer Reach clients. We’re also looking for a Coro Public Ally AmeriCorps member to serve as a Volunteer Coordinator at Computer Reach. This professional will help revamp and improve our volunteer experience.
Official Launch of Digital Navigator Service Model
Computer Reach launched 2 projects where we visited the homes of our end-users to complete one-on-one 1-hour computer setup sessions. Each session includes:
- the setup of a desktop computer bundle and external webcam,
- the setup up a hotspot to provide internet access,
- basic training on passwords, internet safety, and email, and
- time for end-users to ask questions.
We also offer back-end technical support. If an issue is not resolved via phone, we send out a Digital Navigator to assist the end-user in person. We offer these services at no cost to our end-users. All costs are covered through our funding sources and partner organizations. We have seen great success so far and are looking forward to continuing this work with more partners in the future.
Donation from Asset Genie
Computer Reach received a generous donation of 70 Chromebases from Asset Genie, a Greensburg-based electronics company. These All-in-One Desktops are similar to Chromebooks and include a Google-based Operating System. We are currently processing the machines and are looking forward to getting them into the hands of our communities in the near future. Thanks again, Asset Genie!
