Desert Haven Enterprises, Inc. was recently awarded $50,000 through Spectrum’s Community Center Assist program, the company’s five-year $30 million initiative to revitalize local community centers and invest in job training programs in underserved communities where Spectrum operates.
“I am proud to support Desert Haven Enterprises and their mission to help people with disabilities achieve their dreams,” said Assemblyman Tom Lackey (34th District). “Thank you, Spectrum, for remaining committed to strengthening our communities with these significant upgrades and investments in broadband and digital technology, which will allow more people to be equipped with the necessary tools to succeed.”
Spectrum also donated 25 new laptops to support the Desert Havens’ workforce development programs, and Spectrum will offer Desert Haven its 1 Gig internet service, at no charge, for the life of the program. Desert Haven and Charter dedicated a new Spectrum Training and Technology Center on the campus.
“Our primary focus at Desert Haven Enterprises is to equip adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities with the skills, knowledge, and experience they need to be independent, fully-integrated, participants within and contributors to their local community,” said Jenni Moran, executive director of Desert Haven Enterprises.
“Spectrum’s generous contribution of new digital technology and upgraded broadband service, not to mention their financial investment to our organization over the next several years, will help guarantee that those whom we serve will have every opportunity to realize their hopes and dreams for increased independence, competitive employment, and a fulfilled and rewarding life.”
Spectrum launched Spectrum Community Center Assist in September 2021 to benefit local organizations providing critical community services and job training skills in underserved cities and towns across the company’s 41-state footprint.
By 2025, Spectrum will invest $25 million plus $5 million of in-kind contributions to improve 100 community centers serving an estimated 50,000 local residents.
