"We are very excited to offer four new classes designed to help seniors more effectively use their electronic devices in their everyday lives," said long time volunteer Obie Weeks. "Alexa explains the home assistant from Amazon while The "Cloud" will cover how to use The "Cloud" in everyday computing. Home Safety is an overview of the new electronic devices to help make you safer at home and Connecting With Your Neighbor covers how to use Nextdoor and Facebook to connect with your neighbors."

In addition to classes held at Crestview Estates Clubhouse, the foundation hosts a weekly open lab on Fridays called Fix it Friday where seniors can walk in for help with software or hardware problems. There is no charge for this service but donations are encouraged.
