What Our Partners Say
CTN is a gift to senior centers in San Francisco. On an ongoing basis CTN provides well trained patient, caring volunteers including essential bilingual language speakers. CTN staff are enthusiastic to serve, and do so with excellence. SFSC and CTN partner in innovative projects, bringing new programs into fruition. Thank you CTN!
Our collaboration with CTN has given our volunteers at Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) an opportunity to educate our elders on using digital devices and the internet. This has allowed our elders to discover new worlds that they could never before imagine. Thank you CTN for this partnership!
CTN has trained nearly 300 of our affordable housing residents in basic digital literacy, and we hope to serve hundreds more! CTN is highly effective in training seniors, people with developmental disabilities, and residents with various language needs. SAHA, and most importantly our residents, are tremendously grateful for the bridge to greater independence that CTN has provided.
Without CTN, our clients would not have been afforded opportunities to address their fears regarding technology. CTN has diligently donated, introduced, informed and educated our clients about technological devices, computer programs and internet resources.
