How many years do I go to acomplish this. Also can I go to a technical school?12 months ago - 2 answers
Well, any type of business requires money. Where will you get money? I say raise the money through funding. If you are honestly selfless , funding won't be impossible but can be difficult. You need the right reasons. Before starting your own , work at one and see how they operate. Find the ins and outs of the operation. For funding , you need legitimacy! After you understand how a homeless shelter works, start a non-profit organization that supports a cause. Make your organization popular and gradually initiate the funding phase. This takes time. I cannot give you a specific time span it really depends on you. A business degree can be helpful but that is all theory. Nothing better than real life experience. Good Luck.12 months ago
Homeless shelters aren't owned. They are charities. They don't make any money.
Volunteer at a homeless shelter so you can get an idea of how one runs.
