HandyCapable Network started 10 years ago out of a program funded by the ARC of Greensboro to put computer learning labs in group homes for developmentally disabled individuals. Realizing that these adults could do more than simply search the internet, founder, Barbara Davis taught these individuals how to take apart donated computers and replace hard drives, upgrade memory and diagnose computer issues. This group know as “HandyTechs” grew to include 12 individuals who soon were refurbishing computers to be redistributed back into the computer for low-income families and individuals. Today, HandyCapable has distributed nearly 6,000 computers back into the community and contributed to recycling more than 50 tons of hazardous e-waste.
On April 28, 2016, 6:30pm HandyCapable Network will celebrate this exciting milestone with an evening to honor those who have continued to support our organization throughout the years. In celebrating our history and looking forward to our future together, the evening will honor the Weaver Family along with many others for their generosity and commitment to HandyCapable Network.
The celebration will be held at The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, including a presentation by the founding dean, Dr. Jim Ryan.
