ERA donated 3 laptops to SSVP. This equipment is passed on to individuals and families who they encounter or who are referred to them for support. Many of the families are new Canadians. They are used by them for studies, for accommodation and job searches and for communicating. Those who have received the equipment have remarked on how windows of opportunity are opened by having the equipment.
