Empower Your Constituents with Digital Access

Community-based organizations see firsthand how the digital divide creates immense barriers for people to achieve basic tasks like change careers, pursue an education, or just stay connected with friends and family.

FAQs

What populations do you work with?

Low-income families, veterans in need, people with disabilities, seniors, schools, and nonprofit organizations are our primary focus.

Why do you focus on those populations?

Veterans In Need: When compared to the general population, veterans not only have less access to the internet but are less likely to go online, when access is available (71% use the Internet at home and remote locations). Human-I-T is honored to equip Veterans in Need with the technology required to stay current in a rapidly changing digital age. Valuable online resources available to veterans include medical records, online support groups and social outreach, along with job opportunities. We feel it is the least we can do to repay them for their service.

Individuals with Disabilities: Disabilities can create difficulties accessing technology at a library or community center. At home, only 61% of Americans with disabilities own a computer with 57% equipped with a broadband connection. Limited options hinder the ability to gain employment, research medical information, and connect with family and friends. Technology also helps assist the disabled by increasing awareness of online services that offer transportation, food delivery and basic home services such as housekeeping, gardening and food delivery.

Seniors: With 34% of seniors not online, Human-I-T is actively seeking to lower this number by reaching out to the digitally under-represented senior community and providing distribution programs through HUD housing sites including Independent Square and Union Tower. Just as in the disabled community, seniors benefit by using the internet not only to connect with friends and family, but to establish ties with providers of transportation, housekeeping and food delivery services.

Schools: Underfunded Title I (40% of students qualify as low-income) schools are regularly unable to afford proper technology. Students cannot be expected to thrive in an environment where technology is continuously needed but not available to them both in and out of the classroom. By connecting schools that primarily serve low-income students, we give staff and students an opportunity to tap into educational resources that live online.”

What counts as income proof to demonstrate low-income status?

We accept the following documentation to verify low-income status:

  • EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer)
  • Free school lunches
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
  • Or other forms of government assistance
