The Connect Home Initiative:
Officials from T-Mobile, Chelsea Housing Authority, and the City of Chelsea, have announced a partnership to help to bridge the digital divide for the youth of the Chelsea Housing Authority.

T-Mobile donated 100 tablet computers to the Chelsea Housing Authority and the City of Chelsea allocated $12,000 a year for two years to cover the cost of the data service. T-Mobile is committed to the Connect Home initiative started by the Obama Administration and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. T-Mobile has presented approximately 10,000 tablets and high-speed internet access to families in need at housing authorities across the nation and plan to further expand the program in 2017.

The Chelsea Housing Authority identified 100 households with children in middle and/or high school to receive these devices to help the students further their education and assist with homework, school projects and other educational activities. The Executive Director, Al Ewing said “we really appreciate the support shown by the City Manager, Tom Ambrosino, in helping to bring this program to the children in our public housing.”
