What a huge milestone! Congratulations to DiverseIT!

If you're an individual with a disability or know someone with a disability in need of a computer or computer training, DiverseIT may be able to help. Contact them 505-341-7166.

We're celebrating an amazing milestone at DiverseIT. We've given away over 3,000 computers! Used equipment is donated by businesses like Intel and the public, then it's refurbished and given to people with disabilities in our community who need it for work or school, or to communicate. We have also given computers to local nonprofits to support their missions. Rebuilding the computers provides hands-on IT training, too. This achievement would not be possible without the support of our funders like Comcast , ABQ Department of Senior Affairs, Wells Fargo , Bank of the West , NM Technology Assistance Program, Albuquerque Community Foundation. Thank you and way to go DiverseIT!
