Giving homeless the right tools

Computer Associates International, Inc., recently donated $30,000 to Nazareth Housing, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing homelessness and encouraging self-sufficiency on the Lower East Side. The grant will be used to open a computer lab with 13 computers, Internet access and educational software, available to the entire community, housed in the basement of Nazareth’s transitional and permanent housing facility at 721 E. Sixth St. The lab will provide homeless children, teens and adults with access to technology and computer skills training to help them better prepare for school, the workplace and today’s digital world. Above, from left to right: Adrienne Zimoulis, Computer Associates International community relations manager; Peter Welling, C.A. account director for New York City government, including the Department of Homeless Services; Sister Marion Agnes Daniel, Nazareth Housing founder; and Mary Kilbourn, Nazareth Housing executive director.
