Looking for sponsors to help me introduce to our area a program with which a private company in the United Kingdom has had great success: people donate laptops; when necessary, the hard drives are scrubbed and a new operating system is installed along with an Office Suite, (be it MS Office, OpenOffice.org, LibreOffice, or whatever); and qualifying homeless people are given both the laptop and training for using it and for helping them improve their circumstances. The company doing it is called SocialBox.Biz. Anyone interested in the details of their program can find them at https://www.socialbox.biz/homeless-support/.
(Also check out their page about Laptops for Charities: https://www.socialbox.biz/laptops-for-charities-contributes-to-the-future-of-homeless-people/)
It's time to do more than just allow the homeless a place to shower and do laundry. Let's help them (those who want it) to actually learn something that can bring them back from the edge and into a productive lifestyle.
