ABOUT

During the last year, the City of Poughkeepsie has felt the direct impact of COVID-19. Social distancing, unemployment, school closure, community spread  and various stay at home orders/practices have resulted in socio-economic hardships on children and families.

 

Many residents, employers, and students must rely on high speed broadband in nearly every aspect of their lives. For a number of low-income residents, they do not have access to online educational resources, census forms/information, and/or updated COVID-19 information.  According to the U.S. Census, approximately 25% of the City of Poughkeepsie’s households in the 3rd and 5th Wards specifically, lack internet access. This means, a significant portion of Poughkeepsie City School District’s low-income children/students do not have access to the internet.

 

In order to address this community need and develop a workable solution to this stated problem, Nubian Directions has moved forward in designing/implementing a strategic plan to provide free Wi-Fi access to the “unconnected” in the City of Poughkeepsie..
