CYBER cafÉs

I learned how to use my Facebook account to see my grandchild’s pictures who lives in Peru. The computer is very beneficial to seniors because it allows us to keep in touch with our loved ones. -Feliciano J

In 2005, SBSS Mid-City opened the Borchardt Cyber Café, an inviting technology center where seniors experience a variety of tech advances while socializing with the SBSS community. Cyber Cafés are now available at all 3 SBSS senior centers.  

The Cyber Café provides Internet access and allows seniors to stay connected via email, webcams and social media platforms. Seniors can schedule one-on-one instruction or use the computer on personal time, with staff and volunteers to assist as needed. Computers are programmed for numerous languages to suit seniors' preferences.
