“Coming to CompuPlace is a point of pride for Debbra. Her self-esteem has skyrocketed, because when she comes here she can feel normal. She gets to use a computer to learn like other people do.”

– Barbara Christensen
Mother of Debbra Burkey, CompuPlace participant

The Ecumenical Community Center’s CompuPlace is a unique computer learning lab for people with intellectual and other disabilities. A grant from the Program Fund supported the program which improves reading, math, problem-solving, communication, and typical computer and Internet skills in ways that augment quality of life, self-esteem, and independence for participants.
