Our Digital Equity Project offers low-cost refurbished computers to eligible low-income households. Quality devices are donated by local businesses, refurbished by our partner Cascade Asset Management and deployed in the community by DANEnet. Currently, computers are only available through caseworker referral; caseworkers can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
We help qualifying households in Dane County explore affordable home internet options, from $10-$20/mo service for families participating in SNAP, to the availability of mobile hotspots sponsored by our community partners and philanthropists.
Adults can learn very basic computer skills in our free classes to help them connect online with caseworkers, doctors, classes, job resources, and family/friends. Classes cover: using email, safely navigating the internet, making a resume in Word, and troubleshooting basic computer problems. Any scheduled classes and a link to sign-up are below.
Fix IT clinics offer free computer/device repair for households without the means to fix them. Adults can bring in their devices (smart phone, desktop, tower, laptop, etc.) and DANEnet staff & volunteers will do their best to fix and clean the devices. Our schedule of any scheduled clinics is below.
Due to libraries and community centers being closed due to COVID, no classes are scheduled at this time.
