1.  Programs for Homeless and Digital Inclusion Policy links

Posted Feb 10, 2017 10:41
Hello from Atlanta!
I am just finishing my first week as Digital Inclusion Fellow and I am very excited to get information that can help some of the churches I am serving to develop their programs.

One church is looking for types of Digital Literacy activities that they can do with their homeless population, keeping in mind that they are very transient and may only be able to attend one day programs.

The second church is very interested in policy and potentially getting their young members involved in advocacy and putting pressure on legislatures related to Digital Inclusion.

I am very new to this amazing movement so any suggestions that you may have will be very helpful for me.

Thanks in advance!
Necole

I just wanted to reach out to you to let you know that I am working on getting some information for you. Our organization does a lot of work with the homeless community and I am sure that we may have some valuable tools for you.
As time permits, please feel free call or email me at your leisure and that way we can discuss your needs in further detail please.

Thank you so much and I hope to meet you next month.

After speaking with our Missional Life Director, (Claude Bailey-(214) 652-9315 or CBailey@ocbfchurch.org) he provided me with this.
