Digital C and CMHA to help public housing residents connect to the Internet, jobs, and health care

A grant from the Cleveland Foundation is helping to launch a program called "Re-start". 

The goal is to address the digital divide - that's the gap between those who have access to digital technologies, and those who don't. The hope is that families become better connected and able to efficiently look for jobs ...Or even to do homework. 

Re-start is working  with the Cuyahoga  Metropolitan Housing Authority to bring high speed internet to its residents.
