Our Mission

Supporting Individuals,

Connecting Communities

PowerOn is a first-of-a-kind program that distributes technology to homeless, isolated, and disadvantaged LGBTQ+ individuals across the country through our network of LGBTQ+ grantee organizations. This grantee network (Our PowerOn Partner Centers) allows us to work at a national scale to distribute life-saving technology at the most impactful grassroots level, empowering individuals with the tools to take charge of their circumstance and tackle the digital divide head-on.
