Charter Communications and One Economy, a global non-profit organization, will partner with local community agencies in a pilot program to provide up to 1,000 St. Louis area households with free Internet service, training and affordable technology.

Charter will provide approximately $700,000 in high-speed Internet service, modems and digital literacy training over a 24-month period in collaboration with One Economy and local community partner agencies.

Charter and One Economy will utilize the resources of local partner agencies, such as long-time community development organization Better Family Life to identify households participating in the pilot program.

In addition, Habitat for Humanity, Central Bank of St. Louis and Computer Village have joined the initiative to assist with training, technical support and access to affordable computer equipment.

The program will officially launch later this month.
