Update 11/24/14: Happy Holidays from The Learning Shelter and its participants! We'd first like to thank everyone who helped make The Learning Shelter possible for an initial class of 5 homeless. All 5 found job placement after the program! We've got update videos coming out soon featuring Marc and some of our participants, their stories, and what they're doing now, so look out for those soon. Sign up for our email list or follow us on Facebook to receive those updates! The Learning Shelter could use your help! We're looking for funding to help establish The Learning Shelter in a more permanent location. Our current location only enables us to serve 5 participants per program with limited community participation. We'd like to increase that throughput, and get more people significantly improved. If you'd like to be part of trying something new to help make a dent in homelessness, please donate through the "Donate" button below.
The Learning Shelter empowers the driven homeless through mentorship, high-demand skills building, and job placement. The Learning Shelter is prototyping a 90 day live-in training program for homeless individuals.
From 3D printing to local manufacturing, we are bringing communities together to see what the future can look like. Able minded men and women can discover a new direction in life and then turn around and help other homeless people.
The Learning Shelter is fiscally sponsored as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization through the Institute for the Future.
Please join us and be part of a new approach to civic and community development!
