Floor2Feet is an online database concept that uses skills-matching technology to pair homeless job-seekers to local work opportunities in their communities.
For years, homeless shelters have relied on mere paper notebooks and phone calls to organize job findings for shelter residents.
What's the problem with this?
Notebooks can be stolen, damaged, or misplaced. What is more, there is usually only one copy in a homeless shelter at a time, making it difficult to share information quickly and efficiently.
Floor2Feet is moving homeless shelter job searching from paper to pixels through an online database connecting local employment opportunities to disadvantaged community members in need of jobs.
