Communications Overhaul in Progress …

Please help us today! Our computers in our Members’ Communication Room are very outdated and unable to run new programs. We are fundraising to purchase 7 new computers and monitors. The vast majority of our members do not have a home computer at their place of residence. This area of our Clubhouse is heavily used. It provides the opportunity to learn new computer skills, access the internet, search for employment, and keep in touch with family and friends. To support us in upgrading our Communications Room please click on the DONATE NOW tab below and make a “General” donation.
