    Paws is a very good Shelter for Women & Children to go. It's very comfortable. Their programs are also. Good. The employees are very nice and helpful and comforting. It is like a close knit family atmosphere. Food is great. Clothes and Linens are Cozy yet Stylish. Something for everyone. There are different Type, Styles and Colors. It's is a great safe house especially for Women and Children who have just gone through some rough spot in their lives. Thank you PAWS for being there when I needed you. I was never a regular tenant. I just slept there. But it was great.
