Recently the Aaron Tuneberg Remote Supports Project was featured in the Daily Camera, the Boulder, Colorado newspaper.

This program is being run by Imagine!, a Boulder County non-profit that helps people with developmental disabilities. Imagine! partners with SimplyHome to provide technology to their clients at multiple locations, so that those clients can gain safety and independence while living on their own in the community.
