    This place is comparable to a prison. Some staff members are Ill suited for that line of work. Many dealings like candy and cigs constantly move about , and pales of plastic bags filled with dirty clothes line the walls that is used as a sleeping area for those without beds. The counselors are overworked, I personally had a wonderful man try to aid me but never saw him again. Some newbies sit for hours before being interviewed, and the are asked to sit for hours again, without ever being helped. This mission isn't built to help the needy get back on there feet, it's a haven for men that spend their government assistance on drugs and stay there for free. A LAST RESORT at best.

    My experience at P G M is a wonderful one because I HEAR the world of god every day. and I THINK is a self place for me toget my self together and go. I do volunteer there as a kitchen and housekeeping helper for over one year I LIKE IT and I will recommend it to some one. since I lost my job, homeless, and my unemployment run out my social work brought me there with the world of god that I HEAR EVERY DAY my heart now is fill with joy instead pain as use to have it before.
