    The Franklin Family is a beloved one. Although it's an armory, they decorated the building with notes of love and encouragement. They use everything from workshops and art therapy to tough love and joking around to keep you motivated and positive. They invite the best churches that will either pick you up or have a fun, full service where they raffle off free clothes and give out very cute toiletry kits. The Franklin Family makes you feel loved. They go out of their way to make a little time for you, even if they are just maintenance and security. The case managers work hard on what you need. Even medical is cool. If you have to choose an intake that is door to exit outstanding, I would give Franklin a chance.

    In 2011, I found myself at the mercy of the streets in a city I had never been to, alone. I was under the impression that I would be staying with family and I traveled all the way from Tennessee, just to find myself turned away. I didn't know what to do and I didn't want to go back home and face all the people who told me "I told you so." The women at the shelter were as nice as possible about turning me away because I was NOT a NY native. I packed my things back up after 3days and went to my family's house in Cleveland, OH where I started a new life for myself. I'm forever grateful about the experience. I really appreciate the center for the hospitality is showed for those three days.

    The food service great the food itself wonderful you get a well balanced meal. Now down to business. I have a home nor do I work for under cover. The girl who suppose to give me a job was very obnoxious told me I don't have a pocketbook nor a phone how should she take me seriously for a job. Now suppose there was a growing 👩 woman that needed these services, there is email and you all do have computers. They are willing to work they need their break. Also some still on street say you can eat, we provide beds and work 🛌. Thank you.
