    .connectLA: Internet Assistance for LA Households

    An internet connection is no longer a luxury; it’s a necessity. One that is out of reach for tens of thousands of low-income Angelenos. That is why our team of Internet Assistance Advocates works to connect as many households as possible to affordable broadband solutions by offering unbiased guidance to struggling households as they identify and sign up for low-cost internet plans. Through this program, human-I-T empowers low-income households to access the limitless vital online resources and opportunities from their own homes.

    human-I-T provides low-income individuals & nonprofits with technology, internet, and digital literacy training. We collect used electronics from companies to refurbish and more people are provided with computers/laptops and the skills needed to use the technology effectively. We will provide Angelenos with the means to learn how to use the internet through digital literacy courses, provide them with a laptop and support in getting low-cost internet.

    Transforming E-Waste into Opportunity

    We take in unwanted technology (often thought of as "e-waste") from businesses and residents, fix it, and donate it back to low-income Angelenos free-of-charge. The outcome is straightforward: less technology waste and more people with technology. We pair donated computers with free or low-cost internet & digital training. These connections ensure Angelenos have the means to engage in civic processes and share local resources for events, housing, volunteerism, and so much more.
