Lack of computer access a major hurdle for the poor

June 12, 2012

Fingering an orange flash drive like a good-luck totem, Teisha Reynolds took a break from the computer class she hopes will change her life.

At a KEYSPOT computer-access center within the Families First/People's Emergency Center in West Philadelphia, Reynolds is enrolled in computer classes to help get off welfare.

Reynolds, 36, keeps hearing the whole world is online. That's not entirely true.

"When you're poor and without a computer, there's a big gap between you and everyone else," Reynolds said. "For me and my two sons, it's very hard not having one."
