The Families Plus program is extending support of children in challenging circumstances into the world of technology. As use of computers and tablets increases for accessing information and completing applications, it becomes critical for children's future success that they become skilled in using newer technologies.
Families Plus is seeking the funds to acquire the equipment to help volunteers teach children to use touch screen devices to communicate and manage information. Families Plus currently supports 60 local children with wraparound services to prepare them to be successful and healthy adults.
Families Plus intends to request funds from the United States Department of Agriculture, Rural Housing Service, to help purchase the technology equipment needed for this project. Families Plus is hosting a public meeting at 115 Grand Avenue, Delta, on Tuesday, Nov. 19, at 6 p.m. Anyone with questions about this technology-for-kids effort or who would like to help with teaching technology to kids is welcome to attend the meeting.
