New Horizons Un-Limited: Reaching Out to Our Disabled Veterans

Through our NHU Access Technology Initiative - Improving Computer Access for Disabled Veterans, Providing Opportunity

While much focus has been placed on newly disabled veterans, there remains a generation of veterans before them that have been struggling to improve their lives.

In an effort to serve this often forgotten about segment of Veterans, we have been working with the Milwaukee Veterans Administration to identify a slightly older generation of veterans that could benefit from computer literacy training and a grant of a Windows XP workstation.

Through this program, we accept used computers from companies and individuals, recycle our in-kind donations of computer equipment to people with disabilities in our community and throughout the state. The equipment is repaired by volunteer technicians many of whom are students with disabilities who have assisted this program while learning skills and gaining experience for employment.

Over this past year we have provided training and a computer grant to approximately one dozen veterans, primarily with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

We hope to continue this initiative in 2010 and beyond, focusing on veterans with mobility impairments and injuries that result in a physical disability.

If you know of a disabled veteran that could benefit by having access to a computer in their home, please contact us at horizons@new-horizons.org

Visit the Access Technology section of our New Horizons Un-Limited website to learn more about our computer grant program.
