Digital Assistance Workshops

May 10, 2024


ConnectMeDHAD is a Direction home program to help strengthen community and reduce loneliness and isolation. Through ConnectMeDHAD, Direction Home is your partner helping you reach individual goals and achieve learning successes. 

What is ConnectMeDHAD?

ConnectMeDHAD provides community members with a pre-loaded tablet, helpful Internet links and apps, instructional guides with picture walkthroughs, and even peer support to offer ongoing one-on-one assistance over the phone or in-person. 

This program is perfect for older adults that need digital inclusion services that: need help with current devices/learning new skills, have limited wifi access, and those that receive a tablet cannot have free access to any other tablet or computer/the funds to attain one. 

ConnectMeDHAD programming is available for Summit County residents through 2025, Portage County residents through June 30, 2024, and Stark County Residents through September 19, 2024. 

How do I apply for ConnectMeDHAD?

To receive a device if you are in Summit or Stark Counties, you must contact Direction Home's Aging & Disability Resource Center (877-770-5558) for a free screening. Portage County residents should contact Portage DJFS at 330-389-7512.
