One of the greatest needs among people experiencing homelessness is education. Lack of education is a significant barrier to independence. But it’s a barrier we can help them overcome through instruction, inspiration, and motivation.
The Learning Center is a multimedia educational facility equipped with 30 online computer terminals and staffed by fully credentialed LAUSD Belmont Adult Day School instructors. Instructors help students develop an Individual Learning Plan and help them work toward their educational goals.
