HOUSING COMMUNITIES OFFER MORE FREE CLASSES

Oct. 4, 2001 – More than 175 adults and children have already taken advantage of a V.I. Housing Authority class in computer literacy and job readiness — topics combined in a single course but with two specialists teaching.
VIHA officials hope now that many of those individuals will return for the new round of classes, beginning and advanced, that will start Wednesday at four St. Thomas housing communities.
Two of the sites — the Evelyn Webster Learning Center in Paul M. Pearson Gardens and a newly opened facility in Oswald E. Harris Court — provide access for residents with disabilities. The other sites for the classes are in the Michael J. Kirwan Terrace and Estate Tutu Apartments communities.
The classes are free to residents. Sessions will be held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Registration forms are available through Community Services specialists in each community. Additional information is available from Jacqueline Joseph at 777-8442, ext. 7394.
