Empower physically, mentally, & emotionally challenged youth!
Make A Real Change In Someone’s Life
IT’S OUR MISSION:
We provide instruction in computer and Internet technologies to young people impacted by physical, mental, and emotional challenges so they can achieve greater levels of independence and self sufficiency.
Care. Respect. Love. Professionalism.
Family members and dedicated volunteers started this organization to make comprehensive computer training accessible to residents who are most at risk for unemployment and poverty – the unskilled, disabled, single parent, and those affected by our legal system.
Claudia Morgan, Founder
CAY founder, Claudia Morgan, was a pioneer in the use of computer technologies in order to better assist the marginalized needs of those whose lives have been severely impacted by physical, mental and /or emotional challenges.
Consequently, the operational environment at CAY was specifically designed to best utilize computer based technologies to enhance the training and development of key life skills for CAY clientele. Ms. Morgan believed that every individual possessed “STAR” qualities accessed with the support of Special Training And Resources, both technological and computer-based. Access to these special supports will serve to help individuals identify that “STAR” quality that allows them to shine.

This program is focused on developing the highest level of personal independence for our students. Developing life skills in the areas of personal hygiene, self care, household maintenance, financial management, and safety.
