COVID-19 has brought the struggles of our neighbors and community members to front-page news. While you are isolating at home, juggling distance learning and family life, and continuing to pull through these struggling times - we personally hope the best for you and your families. Despite the many difficulties that have presented themselves - the sudden shift to remote and online life has created many opportunities for people to bridge the gap into technology. We hope that the list of resources below helps you or someone you know.

Please note that there is no apparent relationship between WIT and organizations below. It is just a pool of resources we have found being used in our communities or have used ourselves. If you are offering a service or know someone that is, please let us know to add to the list.
