Walter Prescher, a father with 10 children living at home, says internet access is essential to keep his household running smoothly. “With all the kids and all the chaos in the family, that [money] could go towards doing other activities for the kids,” Prescher told CBS News. He and his family live in College Station, Texas. The Iraq war veteran qualified for the Affordable Connectivity Program under his status as a disabled veteran.

Prescher also helps others get connected to the program through his work as a digital navigator for the Easter Seals of Greater Houston, a nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with disabilities and special needs.
