RESPONSE TO COVID-19: To address the great need for technology and internet that has only intensified, Computers for Families has made its refurbished computers and technical assistance available to anyone in Santa Barbara County. As we continue to give out an average of 50 computers each week, we must maintain a steady stream of incoming hardware donations. Your information below will help with our planning around inventory needs.
Founded in 1996, the Computers for Families program was created in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Education Office to provide computers and Internet access to local students lacking these important educational tools at home. Recipients receive a refurbished computer, training, and assistance getting connected to discounted Internet through either Cox Communication’s Connect2Compete (C2C) program or Frontier.
