Introducing the CEA Foundation
The CEA Foundation was launched in 2012 to support seniors and people with disabilities through innovative programs.
The CEA Foundation is a public, national foundation affiliated with the Consumer Electronics Association. It was established with the mission to link seniors and people with disabilities with technologies to enhance their lives. The Foundation is focused on strategic support of programs to impact these communities and has launched its first series of grants in 2012. It also serves to facilitate dialog between industry, consumers, government, advocacy groups and other key stakeholders around important issues.
Selfhelp Community Services
The CEA Foundation announced on June 27, 2012 that their first grant would go towards the Selfhelp Community Services Virtual Senior Center. This support will be used to reach additional seniors in New York as well as expand their program to other cities within the United States.
This innovative program enhances the lives of homebound seniors by utilizing computer, video and Internet technology. The interactive experience of participants, whether homebound or at a senior center, reduces social isolation, promotes wellness, and provides better access to community services as well as enhances independent living.
