Instead of leaving people to fend for themselves on the street, Marc Roth decided to give these individuals a chance with the Learning Shelter. Providing homeless citizens with a roof over their head and food to eat is the first step to survival, but to keep these people on the upward spiral a certain skill set is needed. This is where Roth comes in.
Roth founded the Learning Shelter to fill this void. The program is designed with a "90 day exit strategy," according to the site, and focuses on giving homeless people the skills to make their way in the tech industry. While the job market is still quite competitive, the courses should still provide a base of expertise for attendants of the school to build on, and get their foot in the career door.
