Free IT on Call – Best Deal in Town!

Free Technology Help in Your Home

The Fairfax Area Agency on Aging’s is rolling out its new FREE Volunteer IT On-Call service for residents age 60 or older. Volunteer Solutions recruited and vetted a terrific group of skilled volunteers who will assist people with computer technology problems.

What kind of problems? The volunteers can’t repair computers but they can fix minor problems such as frozen computers, re-connecting the printer, determining if you need a new browser level, and letting you know whether you should have your computer serviced. They can also teach you how to use Skype and other online services. They generally can resolve the problem within an hour.

Call the Aging, Disability and Caregiver Resource Line at 703-324-7948, TTY 711 and request a Volunteer IT On-Call. The person on the phone will ask some questions and determine if the program can help. A county IT volunteer should be able to call you or visit your home within a week.
