    Hideous experience. My rapid rehousing program awarded to me was wrecklessly administered and lost due to no fault of my own. The board seems lazy and ineffective in overseeing the executive director's unethical actions in causing me further destabilization. You will be ok at this shelter as long as you never complain if you are harmed. They removed me for rightfully complaining of the harm I endured there which was illegal retaliation. If you go here, just keep your mouth shut. I was painfully removed for speaking up and tossed into the cold after having a bed there for 2 months. I was painfully hurt and emotionally abused at this shelter.
