Comcast begins a proud, new partnership with a nonprofit organization that provides housing for people in need. Imagine Housing opened its 13th property, Velocity, a 58-unit, affordable housing apartment building in Kirkland, Washington. The building serves low-income families, individuals transitioning from homelessness and persons living with disabilities.
Here Comcast steps in. A $12,000 grant from the Comcast Foundation provides residents with a computer lab, laptop lending library and engaging and informative video displays.
By reducing the barrier to technology, its residents will have access to the latest information on potential jobs, trainings and services. They will be able to access information on public transportation options and community resources. Additionally, children will have access to computers for class projects, homework and other enrichment activities.
