Sixteen students from the Phoenix House adult substance abuse treatment program at Venice Beach, California, have learned new computer skills through free workshops sponsored by the Crossing the Digital Divide nonprofit. The graduation ceremony took place on October 16, 2012 at Santa Monica Senior Center and included performances by a local church choir and speeches by representatives of each treatment program that participated in the Fall Semester of classes – including Phoenix Houses of Los Angeles, Amity Foundation and the House of Uhuru.
Crossing the Digital Divide is a non-profit organization with a very specific goal; to close the gap between the haves and the have-nots by bringing technology to the most vulnerable and ‘in need” or our society, people in recovery. In the past eight years, the organization successfully trained and graduated close to 1,500 students and worked with thousands of volunteers who taught the classes. Phoenix House Venice is the fifth and the newest among the partners of CDD and we are grateful for this new opportunity to improve the lives of men receiving services at our adult treatment center.
