Since 2013 LGBT Tech has operated the PowerOn program, designed to empower homeless and vulnerable LGBTQ individuals through access to technology and the resources and opportunities it provides. PowerOn collects, refurbishes, and upcycles used technology from companies and individuals, which is then deployed to LGBTQ+ community centers (called PowerOn Centers) across the United States where is it used to help provide critical access to services for LGBTQ+ individuals. LGBT Tech has a strong commitment to sustainability and works to ensure valuable materials are reused when possible and that dangerous components do not contaminate water, air, and other natural resources.
