The Grand Opening took place Monday, June 18, at Erie Neighborhood House’s Little Village site. Nielsen representatives, Microsoft, Erie House families and friends were present for the unveiling of the new facility.

Nielsen will strengthen its commitment to Latino families in Chicago by opening a new Community Technology Center at Erie Neighborhood House’s Little Village satellite office.

“Nielsen is excited to support Erie Neighborhood House and its Little Village Technology Center,” said Cheryl Pearson-McNeil, senior vice president, public affairs and government relations at Nielsen. “This is a great opportunity to assist Erie [Neighborhood House] with its day-to-day activities, making sure the students have access to resources needed to help them complete various activities and programs provided by the organization.”

Nielsen is a leading global provider of information and insights into what consumers watch and by. Nielsen is committed to accurately measuring a broad range of consumer behavior representing a wide range of ethnicities and cultures worldwide.

“We are very excited to partner with Nielsen in opening this new Community Technology Center as it will help our families keep learning with the latest, up-to-date hardware. This will help fight the digital divide that persists in our low-income Latino community,” said Celena Roldan, executive director of Erie Neighborhood House.
