    Great, helpful staff. They open at 7:00am and have coffee, and most days, pastries. They provide showers and laundry service in addition to helping with finding housing assistance, help with food stamps, getting ID, clothing, etc. A nurse comes in once a week, a foot doctor most weeks, a person with DES once a week. There are computers you may use for job search and email. They provide furniture and food boxes when you get housing. Lunch is served daily Monday through Friday and volunteers often bring lunch on weekends (not always).
