Computer Training and Refurbishing

Last year, PRC provided 208 free computer literacy classes at PRC. 


Currently, PRC is open only during food pantry shifts. Emergency financial assistance is open by phone appointment only.  All other services are closed, and our buildings are closed to the public.

The PRC Computer Access and Training Program provides free classes in computer skills and software, including Intro to Computers, Windows Fundamentals, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

As a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, PRC takes donated computers and refurbishes them for distribution to people who need a home computer.

The Dr. Fix-It program provides free repairs on home computers for PRC clients.


PRC's computer classes and public computers are open to DuPage adults. PRC clients are eligible to receive one free refurbished computer per household, and computer repairs are also free of charge .

To use the computer lab, take a computer class or receive a computer, you will first need to register as a PRC client or Registrarse como cliente de PRC.
