In 2020, Impact 100 Oakland County funded the Gigabytes for Grand-families project. This project helped provide 20-25 Oakland County Grandparents Raising Grandchildren a computer, internet service, and training for 24 months. Participants learned to care for and use their devices to increase their individual computer skill level.
Participants completed budgeting classes focused on saving for future purchases and internet service after the Gigabytes project ended. They also attended many virtual meetings that supported ways to thrive.
