Having broadband Internet access enriches the lives of those who have it. They can stay connected to friends, find health care information, or learn about the history of automobiles. But those who don’t have access are at a disadvantage, unable to access the wealth of information and opportunity found online.

The cable industry is committed to helping close this digital divide and partnering with community organizations across the country to help educate families about how the Internet can open their world to new opportunities.

The Chapman Partnership in Miami-Dade County, Florida is doing just that. Along with Comcast, they’re showing participants how broadband can improve lives.

Since 1995, the Chapman Partnership has helped thousands of men, women, and children transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Chapman Partnership provides a comprehensive support program, through on-site services and partnerships, including emergency housing, meals, health, dental and psychiatric care, day care, job training, job placement, and assistance with securing stable housing.
