Who We Support

This year’s recipient of our fundraising efforts is Computer CORE. Founded in 1999, Computer CORE’s mission is to teach low-income adults the technological and professional skills needed to pursue their career aspirations. Through computer training and job skills, CORE offers highly motivated, low-income individuals the opportunity to transform their careers and improve their lives. Students apply to participate in an 18 week program designed to prepare them for all aspects of their careers, from computer skills to resume writing and interview advice. For more information, visit computercore.org.
