Grassroots Outreach

Do you need a phone?
Our Grassroots Outreach program can help!

By visiting one of Grassroots Outreach locations, you can obtain a community voice mail number.  You can use this number to put on job applications, housing applications, and stay in touch with friends and family.  You can retrieve your messages from any touch tone phone.

You can also receive Lifeline supported cell phone service through our partner EnTouch Wireless.  Eligible participants will receive  a free monthly cell phone plan, which includes 1000 minutes of talk, unlimited text, and 100 MB of data.  In order to process an application you will need to bring a valid state-issued photo ID, proof of participation in a low-income government program such as EBT or Medicaid, and the last four digits of your social security number.  Please note: due to network upgrades, we no longer offer any free cell phones.  We do have Android smart phones available for purchase for $40, as well as Apple iPhone 5′s for $85.  If you possess a previously active 4G Verizon smartphone (must also be inactive for more than 60 days), we can also transfer service to your phone for free. 

By bundling a community voice mail number with EnTouch Wireless Lifeline phone service, you will have all of the communication tools to achieve your goals!
