The Computer Redistribution Program is a collaborative venture between the National Cristina Foundation and ArtsTech to provide persons with disabilities and other individuals with needs, schools and nonprofits agencies with refurbished computer equipment. ArtsTech distributes over 500 computers each year to people with disabilities, at-risk individuals, and organizations that serve these special populations.

  • Mission Statement

    ArtsTech’s mission is to help young people achieve academically, socially, and professionally through the development and application of their artistic, technological and entrepreneurial skills. ArtsTech accomplishes this by operating a center for youth enterprise, building collaborative partnerships with school districts, charities, and governmental agencies, and managing programs for youth in need in coordination with private and public initiatives.

    Commercial art and technology entrepreneurial business development for youth ages 15-20 is our program objective.

  • Project Abstract

    ArtsTech takes computers donated from the likes of Sprint Corporation, Kinko’s, Bank Midwest and Ferrelgas, repairs and refurbishes them, and sells them at cost or gives them to people with disabilities and other needs, to schools, and to other non-profit organizations in the United States.

    In addition to repair and redistribution services, ArtsTech’s technical staff provides networking services for organizations, maintenance agreements, and computer repair and troubleshooting training for both youth and adult learners.

And recently, ArtsTech signed a partnership agreement with One Economy, a non-profit group that provides Internet connectivity to low-income urban core families, churches, and organizations.
