Did you know that nearly 42% of older Americans (60+) living in the United States do not have high-speed internet at home?
In today’s digital age, access to technology has become more important than ever, and it can have major impacts on individuals’ health and well-being.
Says Tina Huang from GLIDE, a CTN partner organization, “Some of the learners are in their 80s and 90s...One learner was a mother whose daughter was living in Canada. The mother missed her daughter and was very anxious. But with CTN, she learned how to use WhatsApp and can now make video calls and even see her grandchild. She is so grateful and less worried about her daughter now."
Since 2008, Community Tech Network has worked to transform the lives of older adults by helping them get online. We work with senior centers, senior housing developments, public libraries, and social service agencies to provide older adults with free devices and technology classes. We provide remote classes as well, which is particularly helpful for older adults who may be homebound or live in rural areas, and we also help low-income folks sign up for discounted high-speed internet at home.
Help us transform the lives of older Americans.
