Every week our staff members volunteer at Boston and Cambridge senior and low-income centers, teaching phone and computer classes to the people large tech companies have left behind.
"James and "Community Phone Company" has had such a great impact on our seniors technological experiences. Over the last year, they have not only helped seniors understand technological devices, but they have also made it a point to help seniors access the internet in a more cost afficent manner. Our seniors now are more comfortable and have a better grasp of the technological world. They also are saving money on internet and are more aware of the scams that effect seniors. We also want to recognize James for the determination and kindness that he presented at the center during the duration of time he's spent with us. He recognized the struggle we were having because of our lack of personal wifi and he was able to develop a solution. We were able to broaden our Tech Goes Home class and allowed more seniors the opportunity to learn how to use the computer or technological devices. It was truly a pleasure to have James and "Community Phone Company", at our center. "
