Frequently asked questions about the computer sales.


Are the computers NEW?

NO. Remember we are a Microsoft REFURBISHER. Which means that we take in equipment that has been previously owned and carefully prepare it for extending it's life for many years. This process includes testing, cleaning, upgrading and installing a brand new genuine Microsoft Operating System and different utility programs.

Are the computers free?

Access to technology by marginalized groups is a problem that all societies face. We ask people to pay because there are different costs associated with refurbishing a computer like supplies, tools, software licenses, etc. Prices range between $20 and $99.

Are you a store? Do you sell tablets, TV's, or other appliances??

We are not a computer store. We are a computer Refurbisher operating as part of a Mental Health recovery program. The participants in this program kindly volunteer preparing the computers that are made available to the community.
