COVID-19 has drastically affected the way LGBTQ+ organizations interact with their clients. With physical spaces closed for the time being and in-person meetings out of the question, most centers have been forced to move online. For centers without tech or internet access, this forced adjustment has proven difficult, if not impossible. Simply put, LGBTQ+ organizations need tech that can help them connect with the communities they serve.
PowerOn continues to keep LGBTQ+ organizations connected by giving them the tech they need to help take care of their clients. Earlier this week, the program sent laptops to two of our partner centers - Triangle Community Center in Norwalk, CT, and Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center in Allentown, PA. These laptops will help each center's staff continue the vital work they do throughout the pandemic.
As COVID-19 continues to affect our communities, PowerOn will keep doing everything we can to support our partner centers. Now more than ever, LGBTQ+ organizations like TCC and Bradbury-Sullivan keep LGBTQ+ communities across the country safe, healthy, and secure. It's up to us to support the work they do.
