Technology For Families in Need.
How we do it
TechF.I.N aspires to provide fully functional, pre-owned PCs to families in need, free of charge to the family. TechF.I.N sources its computers from a handful of corporate donors. The working machines are picked up in bulk and delivered to our storage facility. There the machines are cleaned, tested, and loaded with the appropriate software by our IT staff, then set aside for distribution. TechF.I.N partners with a select few non-profit organizations that already work closely with low income families. We rely on our partners to nominate appropriate recipient families. Once the nominated family agrees to receive a TechF.I.N computer, it is either delivered to the family or picked up by the family from our storage facility.
Narrowing the digital divide, one recycled computer at a time.
TECHNOLOGY For Families in Need, Inc.
TechF.I.N seeks to address an alarming trend in America. Millions of low income families lack access to a computer in the home. This lack of access contributes to a growing digital divide where completing schoolwork, or college and job applications becomes increasingly difficult. Yet, in this environment U.S. companies dispose of millions of functional computers every year, per their upgrade cycle. In a solution that is both sustainable and beneficial, TechF.I.N aspires to divert some of these machines from the scrap heap to the living room.
