Program description

So much of what people need everyday is online, yet not everyone has access o the equipment, resources, or how-to knowledge to navigate the virtual world. Covid-19 has brought this challenge to the forefront, and SFRS in collaboration with the Coalition of Neighbourhood Houses CRD, has stepped up to host this much needed program.

This pilot program, hosted by the Sooke Family Resource Society, has been mad possible through the generous support of the Federal Government's Emergency Community Support Fund in which the United Way of Greater Victoria plays a pivotal role in managing and distributing funds locally.
