Our refurbished computers have touched the lives of people around the United States enabling access to better educational, healthcare and employment opportunities.
Our recipients range from a variety of backgrounds and include high-schoolers, college students, working professionals and seniors among others.
As a R2 certified organization, Hoodoutreach has the highest certification for environmental stewardship. We are the only Florida recycler and one of two in Georgia with both the R2 and NAID AAA certifications.
Founded in 2017, Hoodoutreach is a national leader in digital inclusion. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, every project, program and initiative is centered on getting low-cost computers and affordable broadband internet into the homes of low-income individuals. Through an unwavering commitment to the communities we serve, we have distributed over 115,000 computers, subscribed 96,000 of families to low-cost internet, and recycled 7 millions of pounds of electronics. Digital inclusion efforts such as ours are essential in today’s society, where it is increasingly hard to access education, healthcare or employment opportunities without access to a computer and the internet. Our model is a self-sustainable social enterprise centered on building community value in every part of our program.
Our model contributes to environmental sustainability by intercepting usable computers before they reach landfills and refurbishing them for reuse. Businesses typically retire computers long before their usable life is over and this has contributed to America becoming the largest producer of electronic waste in the world. We offer businesses a certified secure electronic recycling service. This IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) service is free and offers benefits such as privacy and total data security that businesses would ordinarily have to pay for. Any usable computers obtained through this service have their data securely wiped using our NAID AAA certified process and are then refurbished for distribution. Our environmental certifications ensure that all electronic waste we cannot reuse is recycled sustainably with zero-landfill impact.
