Chartiers Center’s Training and Social Rehab Program received a grant from the Pittsburgh Indian Community and Friends (PICAF). The grant was used to create a computer lab for the consumers in the program. According to Amy Randall, T&SR Coordinator, the computers are a welcome addition to the program and will provide a valuable resource to the consumers. Some ideas the staff have for the computer lab is to create resumes and explore job opportunities. In addition, the consumers will be using the computers to research topics and information that they will share during their groups.
For some, this may be a new opportunity and for others it is an opportunity for guided classes on how to use and search the internet. The program staff are excited to be able to offer this valuable resource to many of the consumers who do not have personal computers. Where they will travel via the internet is endless. There is a lot of adventure in their future.
Many thanks to the PICAF organization for making this possible.
