CTN AND COVID-19
As the public health crisis isolates people at home, we know older adults are most vulnerable to COVID-19. Now that seniors can no longer leave their homes and attend digital training events through the SF Connected program, CTN has introduced Home Connect. This innovative program will provide internet, devices and online training to selected seniors San Francisco. We hope to partner with groups in Austin as well, help us make this possible by donating.
