Bob Newburg Computer Room
Launched in March of 2006, the Bob Newburg Computer Room, located at Weston’s Transitional Living Community (TLC) facility, serves as a memorial to CEO Jean Newburg’s husband who passed away in 2005.  Bob, a model for achievement in the face of adversity, began delivering vegetables from a grocer’s cart in Long Island City at the age of six. Ultimately, he worked at Chase Bank in computers for many years, and the JPM Chase Foundation generously donated the majority of the funds, along with family and friends, to create a special room equipped with twelve Dell computers and work stations for Weston’s consumers to learn important computer skills.  The room is available for consumers to learn basic computer skills, email, and job research/development – all critical for gaining employment.
