Of the many lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic, social isolation in senior affordable housing emerged as one of the greatest negative impacts on residents. Limited internet access, compounded by the lack of digital literacy, continues to this day as a persistent challenge to providers and residents alike. Lighthouse for Older Adults was designed to bring connectivity to senior housing communities by addressing specific infrastructure barriers and technology needs of communities with digital literacy training tools for residents. Lighthouse was developed by Front Porch and Eskaton in collaboration with the University of California Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS).
