Honolulu Internet Resources for Low-Income Families

It’s increasingly difficult to participate in academic and professional activities without an internet connection, but a disproportionate number of low-income families lack access to both computers and broadband internet. To address this disparity known as the digital divide, organizations across the country provide affordable digital technology to the families that need it most. The following lists contain resources aimed at bridging the gap between the benefits of digital technology and financially stretched families in Honolulu:

Discounted Distance Learning Devices in Honolulu

  • PCs for People: Honolulu families that qualify for the PCs for People low-cost computer program can buy a professionally refurbished laptop from the organization’s online store. Necessary application materials include a valid government ID and documentation demonstrating financial need.
  • human-I-T: Qualifying low-income individuals in Honolulu can shop at human-I-T’s online store for a steeply discounted refurbished laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. Device availability varies, but you may be able to get a laptop for as little as $125 through human-I-T’s low-cost computer program.
  • Hawaiian Hope: A local non-profit organization, Hawaiian Hope gives used computers and office equipment away for free to low-income individuals living in Honolulu. Their Classrooms and Free Recycled Computers program awards free computer systems to Honolulu homeless students transitioning out of shelters.
