Comcast’s Internet Essentials recently kicked off its third year at Chapman Partnership in Downtown Miami and Mochee was at the bustling press conference to catch all of the action! Internet Essentials is a program designed to bring affordable internet access to low-income households. As one of the largest and most comprehensive homeless shelters in South Florida, Chapman Partnership, was a natural partner for Comcast’s efforts.
On August 13th, Comcast brought their team to Chapman Partnership’s North Center to kick off another year of “bridging the digital divide.” They were joined by Miami Dade County Public School’s Superintendent, Alberto Carvalho, who spoke on the great difference internet access can make to local families. Comcast’s David Cohen presented Chapman Partnership CEO, Daniel Vincent, with 50 internet giftcards to provide residents as they leave the center and move to transitional or permanent housing. This will add to the extensive list of ways Chapman Partnership helps their residents attain self-sufficiency every day.
The packed press conference was covered live by NBC6 and Mochee had a front row seat, live tweeting and posting on various platforms throughout the event. Comcast also donated five Chapman resident families new computers equipped with WiFi and generously gave the entire Chapman Partnership North Center grounds WiFi access. Our entire days at Mochee are spent on the internet and we were honored to be a part of bringing awareness to the issue of affordable internet access.
