DRS vows to expand job opportunities as well as create financial and independent living and iCanConnect is one of the ways it is doing that. The program is providing communications devices such as laptops, tablets and braille devices to low-income people with combined hearing and vision loss. Those who qualify can receive the equipment and one-on-one training free of charge.
