Deaf-Hearing Communication Centre, Inc. (DHCC) has raised funds and created a mobile internet hotspot. It is comprised of five Ipads in roadboxes, a cellular hotspot, tables and chairs and a canopy, along with sanitation material. The project was created because many members of the Deaf community lost internet access during COVID for various reasons. DHCC has been taking the equipment to various locations like park pavilions, firehouses, faith organizations and others in order to provide people with internet access to take care of whatever they need. If you would like to bring this mobile internet hotspot to your organization, please contact Ken Wesler, email@example.com.
