First Neighborhood Networks Center in Native Alaskan Community Opens

Look for this in a senior center near you! (it never opened at the Senior Center, of course. Was moved to another organization for a year or so and hasn’t been seen since.)

First Neighborhood Networks Center in Native Alaskan Community Opens

02/16/2001

Bethel, Alaska — Neighborhood Networks celebrated the dedication of the Bethel Neighborhood Networks Center, its first center to open in a Native Alaskan community, Jan. 19.

The Neighborhood Networks center also is the third to open in a Native American community, following the Santo Domingo Pueblo Library/Learning Center in Santo Domingo Pueblo, N.M., and the Akwesasne Neighborhood Networks Computer Learning Center in Hogansburg, N.Y. The first two centers opened in Oct. 2000.

The center, located in the Eddie Hoffman Senior Center near several schools and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) housing developments, will be used for computer, academic and employment training, and cultural activities. Bethel will serve over 100 people.

HUD prioritized the development of the Bethel Neighborhood Networks Center in response to a severe decline in the fishery industry, a major source of food and commercial activity, which created a hardship for those living and working in the area.

HUD presented certificates of achievement to local organizations supporting the center, including:

* The Orutsaramuit Native Council, which led the effort to establish the center
* The City of Bethel, which provided space for the center
* The AVCP Housing Authority, which contributed $25,000 in start-up funds
* AVCP, Inc., which provided technical support
* The Eddie Hoffman Senior Center, which provided staff
* The Bethel Native Corporation, which facilitated the development of the business plan and agreement for the space
