About Us

Necessities for Children began in 2015, worked with various special projects impacting disadvantaged youth, and sought to find the gap where children are not being served adequately. By providing access and computer science education to low-income youth, we provide the opportunity to gain essential and critical skills for success in their future career. The outcomes for children include computational education and digital literacy.
