CRIS Radio has received a grant from the North Central Area Agency on Aging to train seniors in local senior centers on the wonders of new technologies. Included in the trainings will be information about the CRIS app, how to use Alexa and other smart devices and Audio Reading Books.
In addition, CRIS is developing a Technology Resource Guide, podcasts and a webpage to further help seniors "plug-in".
The first event was at the Enfield Senior Center and met with great success. CRIS will be partnering with NEAT @ Oak Hill to help seniors explore the wonders of a smart home.

The 21st CRIS Golf Classic was a huge success, raising money by gathering old friends and new for an afternoon of the ancient game. The money raised from the tournament allows CRIS to offer its service at no cost to people living in the community who are blind or unable to read due to learning, physical, intellectual, and emotional disabilities.
CRISKids for Schools was among the resources offered at Fall for Enfield, a fair for Enfield residents hosted by ERFC. CRISKids for Schools is available to all of the students in Enfield schools and is used by ERFC, an after-school program. CRIS is providing training and support throughout the year.
CRISKids for Schools kicked off the 2018 school year by offering a professional development (PD) session to 78 teachers from Enfield. The session was developed and led by long time CRISKids users Lauren Lieberman and Cassandra Hunt, both of Kennelly School in Hartford.
The PD was hosted by Educational Resources for Children (ERfC) and funded through grants from the Fund for Greater Hartford and The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
