New affordable Rogers wireless program will help vulnerable Newfoundlanders supported by Thrive

Today, Rogers announced the launch of a new national program to make 5G wireless services more affordable and accessible to over 2.5 million eligible low-income Canadians receiving various government income supports. 

For the vulnerable Newfoundlanders that we support at Thrive, this affordable program and no-cost smartphone will truly impact so many participants in our programs, from having access to vital resources like employment, education and social services to public safety and staying connected to loved ones. 

Full details on the program can be found here:

Connected for Success 5G Wireless (Nov. 7, 2023)

The Rogers Connected for Success wireless program means Thrive participants can stay connected to community services, and when facing a crisis such as homelessness, intimate partner violence, or a medical emergency, they now have a means to connect to the appropriate supports. Having access to affordable mobile services will improve social connections, access to supports, and increase safety for so many people we support.
