Wildwood Programs: Broadband Video for Human Services Agencies

Wildwood Programs is proposing a sustainable broadband adoption program to deploy videoconferencing and other broadband capabilities to 75 human services facilities in upstate New York to increase institutional broadband subscribership among organizations that serve people with disabilities in the region.
In light of a recent New York State finding that people with disabilities access broadband services and its attendant economic and social benefits much less frequently than the population at large, the project plans to make videoconferencing available to clients through a number of mediums, including from their home computers. Also, because many agencies providing service to people with disabilities have been slow to adopt high-speed services, the project intends to focus on remote staff training and coordination and act as a model and case study for the agencies as they incorporate broadband services into their client interactions.
