Spectrum has presented the Central Community House with a $30,000 grant to support its Technology Assistance Program (TAP) aimed at helping seniors in Ohio enhance their digital literacy. The program was initiated during the pandemic to assist older individuals in navigating technology and avoiding social isolation. Approximately 225 seniors have benefited from the program, with many reporting improvements in their social lives as a result.

Tamar Forrest, the executive director of Central Community House, expressed gratitude for the opportunity to serve more individuals each year with the assistance of the grant. Over 220 people were assisted this year, with significant demand evidenced by waitlists that the organization struggles to keep up with. This success underscores the importance of the program in addressing the social needs of seniors.

Since 2020, Spectrum has provided $75,000 in grants to Central Community House, supporting their efforts to enhance digital literacy among seniors.
