Activity 4 - Wrap Up

- Record your group's thoughts.Opportunities.docx

Rural areas have major concern due to distance between homes needing access.

Access at Community Centers/ churches, etc is the current solution.

Each area has unique and common challenges to overcome in our attempts to provide access to all- this will take continued  problem solving and individuals with passion to make our dreams today a reality for the future.
