Mission Statement

The Buddy Project is an organization that provides technology , training, and advocacy to the disabled.

Description

The Buddy Project is the only nonprofit technology organization for the disabled in Maryland, and has already served more than 130 individuals since its founding. The Buddy Project provides refurbished computers to those who are intellectually and developmentally disabled. These computers are not to be used as a family computer and are set up specifically for people with disabilities. The Buddy Project is an increasingly vital part of the disabled community and plans to be an important advocate and educational resource to the general public about disabled individuals. In fact, this is a dire need in the disabled community due to the misconception that disabled people cannot learn to use technology.

Once the client receives the refurbished computer, there is a training curriculum that is covered with each and every client to help them better understand their computer and how they work. We work with the client for as long as he or she is a part of The Buddy Project. Eventually the client will be assigned a Program Manager that will work with him/her on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Furthermore, all computers are maintained by The Buddy Project and are switched out about every two years in order to allow the client the best technology experience possible.
