Through the 1st year of the program, we collected quite a few comments and stories from program participants and partners. We would like to share with you a few of the heart-warming statments we recieved via email, our online surveys, and on this website.
“Able-Disabled Advocacy’s partnership with SDFF has made an enormous impact on the lives of the low income youth and adults with disabilities. This population could never afford the computers, internet connections and high level training they have received through the participation in the San Diego Broadband Initiative. This is the most genuine collaboration ADA has ever been involved in. We look forward to more programs and projects with SDFF in the future.”

“I have tried for over 10 years to acquire my own computer to no avail. Thank God for the San Diego Broadband Initiative. Words cannot express my gratitude for all SDFF has done for me.”

“ I am so glad to have joined the program. My children will now have the same opportunities that most kids have. I believe that through education that will not be in the kind of financial crisis as adults that I am in now. Thank you for giving my kids a better chance”

“I would like to thank you for the computer classes and for giving us our own personal computer. My daughters are GATE (Gifted and Talented) students. They get a lot of homework which needs to be done on a computer. They no longer have to wait in line at the Tech Center for a half hour to use a computer for fifteen minutes.”

Greetings everyone and BIG Kudos to the site Webmaster and contributors. My name is Marcus. I have been a volunteer PC Instructor at "Seniors on Broadway" since opening day here almost a year ago in Chula Vista, CA. 1st off, it has been a pleasure sharing my knowledge with my class. They have really come a long way!! I am so proud of them!!
Today they will receive their PC's made possible by way of the San Diego Broadband Initiative. In these tough economic times, it is a blessing for us all to benefit from such a program.
To the Webmaster and team, this site is AWESOME!!! Easy on the eyes, colorful, tons of clickable resources and easy to navigate even for a novice. The language translator and site color changer are two of my fav features. I've registered to the site myself and have been using it the past week and will continue doing so. If you are part of the SDBI program, PLEASE bookmark this site, I KNOW it will help YOU!! The 'Resources' link itself is Gold and very well organized. I've been a PC Specialist for over 20 years and if there is a site that offers help info to 'newbies' and or 'geeks' the SDBI site is #1!!! Peace everyone...
