Philadelphians Concerned About Housing ISO Computer Coach

Posted on October 10, 2002

The primary responsibility of the computer coach is to help each child and adult client be a more active participant in our technology-oriented society. In particular, the computer coach will help each child realize his or her educational and developmental potentials through computer based learning opportunities and help each parent improve their computer skill levels so as to enhance his or her education and employment opportunities. The computer coaches also support the educational skills coordinator, the job coordinator and the social worker in ensuring that clients achieve their education and employment goals. All clients of the computer coach are members of low-income, homeless, single parent families who are participants in Philadelphians Concerned About Housing’s Family Self-Sufficiency Program. The Family Self-Sufficiency Program helps these families reach self-sufficiency by providing comprehensive, intensive, supportive social services in tandem with safe, decent and affordable housing.
