    I actually stayed in this shelter many years ago. I was there bout a wk. I had chores to do. I had to be out at a certain time and couldn't go back in til I think 5 pm. Different churches would pull up and invite you to their church. The shelter was really clean and well ran i admit for a body coming from another town
