How it Started
Bob Langford was blinded in an accident at age 16. Instead of quitting, he worked hard to achieve many things until he earned a Doctorate's Degree in Vocational Rehabilitation. Later in life, Bob discovered how computers could overcome many obstacles and he wanted to share this gift with others.Read Bob's Journey
Today, it takes a team to get everything done! We have a volunteer board that works hard behind the scenes to further our mission, as well as staff members that focus on getting computers out to our clients. Get to know them and how they hold this all together.Meet Us
