Teachers:

We prioritize students who are most in need and whose lives would benefit the most from having a computer. If you’re a teacher and you have students in your classroom who have scholastic abilities but who don’t have access to a computer at home, Computer Smiles can help! Contact Us to put in a request. We will provide information on getting low cost Internet service in the student’s home and will provide a free computer for the student. In addition, we guarantee that the computer will work properly through the child’s high school graduation. If the computer breaks down before then, we repair or replace the computer for free.
