The State

A computer training center for the poor was opened in a San Francisco church after a group of executives from high-technology companies in the Silicon Valley donated $100,000 for equipment. David Bunnell, a San Mateo trade publisher who came up with the idea, hopes the Computers & You center in the city’s Tenderloin district will place computers in the hands of the poor. The program is now open only to children from low-income families but in a month will accept up to 150 applicants, regardless of age or economic status. The computer center at Glide Memorial Church will target the homeless and recovering drug addicts.
