Rebirth, Inc., a local registered nonprofit, located in Salisbury, Maryland is operating a Virtual technology, learning & support center for vulnerable populations. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools in our communities closed for in-person learning and continue to offer only virtual learning for many students. This situation has caused the most disadvantaged students to fall behind their peers of higher socioeconomic status. Rebirth has opened a center 225 N Division St, Salisbury, MD 21801 to provide access to virtual classrooms, tutoring and homework assistance for children in the community whose families lack the technology and skills to continue learning, virtually from home. Additionally, many families do not have access to the internet, or enough bandwidth to support virtual learning. For many families in our community, Spanish and Creole is their primary language, creating a barrier to understanding the process of virtual school formats. The Hispanic and Haitian communities have been deeply affected by the pandemic and are the most vulnerable to falling further behind in their education.
We help parents register their children to school, set up with any health issues that they are facing and refer them to the appropriate agency.
