If I'm blessed to one day own and manage a homeless shelter I would love to offer workshops throughout the day that helps develop leadership, professional skills, and personal development. Not only do I want to assist them with finding shelter and employment, but also provide them with the knowledge to maintain a positive lifestyle. Participating in this project makes me feel closer to accomplishing my dream.

I expected for the homeless shelter to provide some sort of developmental training for the homeless individuals seeking assistance however the only thing educational being taught is religious studies there is a mandatory Chapel or Bible Study option for those staying over night. Although I do like that this shelter gives the option for individuals to leave in the morning or stick around. However if you stay at the shelter throughout the day you only have availability to the sitting room which is the size of a class room with about 50 chairs and 1 tv. There is no recreational space, but there is a fenced area outside at the side door where individuals can go smoke at.
