Northern Kentucky Tribune – StandUp Wireless expands community partner reach to bring free cell phone service to those in need
StandUp Wireless will expand its Community Partner Program to local social service agencies in Greater Cincinnati. The expansion follows a successful pilot effort in the area that saw the wireless company partner with 40 community organizations to provide more than 600 disadvantaged residents with free wireless cellphone services through the federal government’s Lifeline program.
Being able to connect with clients is vital to the successful mission of social services agencies, but often their clients cannot afford reliable cell phone service. StandUp Wireless recognized the need for these organizations and their clients to communicate and launched the Community Partner Program to assist agencies so they can easily help their clients sign up for quality, reliable cell phone service provided by the Lifeline program. Partner organizations receive a dedicated website where they can direct clients to quickly and easily find out if they qualify for this program and sign up to receive their benefits.
