    Kicked someone out simply because she reported a guy harassing her, continously losing paperwork (one time right after i gave it to them), when they make a mistake its your fault, and they discriminate against people with certain mental health issues. I didnt feel welcome there at all while i was staying there, especially with that creepy dude glaring daggers at me everytime i talk to ther woman who eventually was asked to leave because of him.
