King County Community Voice Mail changes name to ConnectUp highlighting new ways to link people to resources for stability
Solid Ground's Community Voice Mail program has changed its name to ConnectUp. The new name was prompted by an expanding vision for the program as it works with more communications technologies to keep people living on low incomes connected. Launched in 1991 by Solid Ground, Community Voice Mail pioneered the use of free voice mailboxes to connect people living without homes or phones to potential employment, housing and community.
About the name change, Program Supervisor Lambert Rochfort says, “We recognize that voicemail technology is no longer the only way for disenfranchised people to connect to vital resources. This new name, ConnectUp, is reflective of the services we provide to help low-income people access communications technology, information and services.”
