About Tech Goes Home
Who We Are
Founded in 2000, Tech Goes Home (TGH) empowers communities to access and use digital tools to overcome barriers and advance lives. Our programs are directed at individuals without technology at home, with a focus on those who are un- or under-employed, are from low-income households, have limited English proficiency, or are living with disabilities.
In the past five years alone, we have graduated 22,000 learners from our programs and distributed 14,500 new computers.
Access to technology is something many take for granted. However, there is a great inequity between those who can afford this access and those who cannot. Tech Goes Home is closing this gap here in Boston and beyond by providing training and low-cost computers to our residents most-in-need. I’m proud that Tech Goes Home is helping our city lead the way toward a goal of making technology useable and available for all our residents.

"The best part is having more time with my son. He is teaching me more than I expected, we are doing homework together."
"The class bonded. If one person didn't know how to do something, we did a sharing experience... It's empowered me."
