AARP Foundation and Family Matters partnered in a pilot program, Connect To Community, teaching low-income seniors (mostly from Ward 2) how to use the internet on an iPad to combat isolation and increase social activity. They chose seniors who have no previous experience with the internet or computers. Comcast wires their home for wi-fi at a discounted rate for one year. If they complete the 6-month course, they keep the iPads. (Photo by Sarah L. Voisin/The Washington Post via Getty Images)
