The New Year is upon us and along with all the New Year’s Resolutions, and aspirations for making the ’07 a terrific year, let’s remember to make giving to others a part of our daily life and also take the time to give thanks for all that we are given.
We at CompuTech for Humanity give thanks for the opportunity we have to make a positive difference in the lives of people who are living with the very difficult challenges of poverty, mental and physical disabilities. CFH is grateful for our corporate sponsors and also for individual donations. Without this support, we could not carryout our mission.

“We believe it is important to step to the aid of others in whatever way you can,” says Safoian. With the assistance of CompuTech for Humanity, SADA Systems, and the Friends and Helpers Foundation schools closed by Hurricane Katrina will be one step closer to opening their doors.
SADA Systems, Inc. founded in 2000, is a privately held information technology consulting, outsourcing, and development firm. SADA works with clients to develop innovative Information Technology solutions to business problems. For more information, visit www.sadasystems.com
All computers and printers were delivered through the Friends and Helpers Foundation, a California-based non-profit working with Care Unlimited in Louisiana. For more information visit their website, www.friendsandhelpers.org


LAUSD Cleveland Early Ed CenterReceives computers for preschoolers

Thanks to Eula Anderson, Principal and Diana Mayo, Head Teacher at the LAUSD Cleveland Early Education Center in Reseda California, 160 low-income preschoolers will have the opportunity to learn computer skills in preparation for a life-time of learning. Ms. Mayo contacted CFH inquiring if computers were available to nonprofits such as schools. CFH recognized the opportunity to reach out to our youngest citizens and was able to donate 10 computers for the children in October, 2006.
