Launched by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in 1995, Neighborhood Networks were one of the first federal initiatives to promote computer access and self-sufficiency in low to moderate income communities. Neighborhood Networks is a community-based initiative that has a profound effect on the lives of the residents and the communities they live within because the centers create an opportunity for people to succeed.
Today, there are more than 1,400 Neighborhood Networks computer labs across the country that brings the power of technology to low-to- moderate income households and the community. These centers offer an array of different activities and programs including adult and children education programs, new employment opportunities and after-school enrichment programs.
The RoseHill Neighborhood Network Center (NNC) opened in March 2012 in the historically rehabilitated Administration Building for Stevens Courts, now called Pecan Ridge. The NNC offers the RoseHill community free access to computing resources and a variety of educational courses.
