CRIS Radio has received a grant from the North Central Area Agency on Aging to train seniors in local senior centers, assistive living centers, and low vision groups 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 web page to further help seniors “plug-in”.
The first event was at the Enfield Senior Center and met with great success. CRIS will partner 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.

Staff from CRIS Radio attend community health fairs to make sure people in the area know that CRIS is there for them and their neighbors. Often we meet old friends, engage future volunteers and find new partners. This wouldn't be possible without the support of the NCAAA.
