Did You Know?
Cleveland is the Worst Connected Big City in the Nation.*
In a city where 1 out of 4 people live under the poverty line, we are ALSO the worst connected city in the nation. No access to internet makes basic human rights like education, job opportunities, and healthcare unobtainable.
The Phe’be Foundation wants to change that.
By standing in the financial gap of the digital divide, Wired 2 Work aims to connect the unconnected by providing internet access for up to 1 year while also providing the financial tools needed to succeed.
*Per Latest Census Data
Connecting the Disconnect, Wired 2 Work aims to bring services to citizens of Cleveland in need of internet service. Along with our sponsoring partners, additional donations of any amount are greatly appreciated.
Our framework estimates that just $83 can wire 1 family, for up to 3 months. Our pilot program goal is to provide funding & collaborative access by covering the cost of Internet services for six (6) months up to one (1) year at no cost to the families/end users.
