    Dirty, all floors smell like pure feces, showers are disgusting, you're forced to wake up at 6 even if it's your day off of work, you're treated like a criminal for being homeless. No place to safely charge your phone for the night, the locker provided is super tiny and can't hold anything, beds are hard, sheets are dirty, neighborhood is terrible, crackheads, food is bad, etc... Horrible.

    I am currently at this shelter. There rules need to change for women who got serious health problems like me diabetes. My blood sugar dropped to 35 and they turn off all the drinks and snack machine. So I told security my blood sugar dropped. He gave me his orange and that saved me. The next night I woke up with the same problem blood sugar low, but was told I has to wait until breakfast and it was 5am. Breakfast start at 7am. This make no sense. I should be able to keep two fruits on hand for blood sugar low emergency but I was told by security I am sorry but we has to follow-through rules no foods inter rooms. I could pass out, go into an coma in my sleep and it would be too late to save me. I am currently at Lincoln hospital emergency room for my painful knee and others sypthoms.

    I believe they have a man to reside among females who is transitioning over. No emergency buttons on the floors to notify staff. The showers and bathrooms and rooms not be cleaned regularly.
