ProLiteracy opens new Near West Side headquarters
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - An organization that helps adults who have fallen behind the curve when it comes to basic skills such as reading and writing has found a new home on Syracuse’s Near West Side.
The new Marcellus Street headquarters for ProLiteracy has undergone numerous renovations.
The building used to be home to Case Supply.
Unlike ProLiteracy’s old location, the new facility will offer a computer lab.
People can walk into the building and receive one-on-one help using the computers and the Internet.
ProLiteracy says the kinds of skills they help with are needed in a neighborhood like the city’s Near West Side.
"In low income neighborhoods, not everyone has a computer and getting access to the Internet is still an expensive proposition so providing free access is one of our goals to lessen the digital divide,” said ProLiteracy President and CEO David Harvey.
The renovations were paid for by the Near West Side Initiative.
