Danville business owner teaches computer skills to those released from prison

Steve Barrow opened his computer repair and sales business on Franklin Turnpike nearly two years ago. But soon after starting up, he saw a need for teaching basic computer skills to those recently released from prison.

Barrow offers free one-on-one computer training at his store, Hammer Hill Computers, to help returning residents reenter society. Those who have been in jail or prison, especially after a lengthy sentence, will likely have trouble operating computers and navigating the Internet, Barrow said.

“If you’ve been in prison for 20 years, you’re not going to know Google,” he said during an interview at his business last week.

Barrow does not ask what his clients served time for. That’s beside the point.

“I don’t ask what they went in for,” he said. “It’s not my business.”

After 30 years, computer repair service still ‘about people’

WILBRAHAM – The small shop at 2785 Boston Rd. in Wilbraham is filled with shelving racks on which customers’ devices sit. There isn’t much space to move around in the small rooms, but the areas are used efficiently. Anywhere that isn’t taken up by electronic equipment is occupied by posters and models of various sci-fi franchises, mostly Star Wars.

“We’re all geeks,” said owner Aristeo Torres. The quirky nature of the shop belies the expertise of Torres, his partner Jan Macon and the five technicians that work under Torres’s tutelage at POST Computer Systems.
