I met Marc Roth last week and was inspired by his personal story -- he got himself a membership at the TechShop in SF while he was homeless, taught himself how to use the machines, became a TechShop instructor and now has his own business!
He has a vision for a Learning Shelter -- a makerspace, shelter and 90-day training program to give its participants (all homeless) the skills and experience they need to get a job.
I think this would be an amazing opportunity for our SF tech community to apply our skills & expertise in order to help our neighbors. But first it needs to exist!
There are only 4 days left to his Indiegogo campaign and he needs our help to make this happen!
