Bliss Towers gets computer lab
John Mason is reporting in the Register-Star Bliss Towers is getting a computer lab. The board of the Hudson Development Corporation Tue., Jul. 26, unanimously awarded more than $4,000 to the Hudson Housing Authority for the purchase of four Dell computers and dedicated WiFi access. The Computer Lab and Training Program will make it possible for Bliss residents and Section 8 applicants to obtain technical education and computer literacy. The lab will be used by residents to seek and gain employment and available housing opportunities, as well. Second Ward Alderman Tiffany Garriga said the facility will also allow existing programs, such as the Women's Health Project and Operation Unite's literacy program, to expand. For some time, the public housing complex has been Hudson’s only low-to-moderate-income housing center without a computer room. The residential complex is located on Second Street, between Columbia and State streets in the city's Second Ward and is home to 282 people. Hudson Terrace, Crosswinds and Providence Hall/Schuyler Court all have their own computer rooms. With this program, Bliss Towers enters the 21st century. “It was a long journey, but there’s a shining light at the end," Garriga said. Read the full story in the Register-Star.
