Foster Care Children To Get Free Mobile Devices

An effort is underway in Florida to connect kids in need with the technology they need.

First Lady Casey DeSantis announced yesterday that the Department of Education and DCF have partnered to provide mobile devices to about one-thousand children in foster care.

DeSantis says this will help address the unique challenges to educational stability these students confront.

The Governor also announced T-Mobile is partnering with the state to give over 600-thousand families 100 gigabytes of internet per year, free, for the next five years.
