    if they learn to talk to people in a respectable way. it might work people with all kinds of mental issues that need bearing degrees intervention and that goes a long ways toward separating who's who down the long chains of transient people.

    Some of the staff were very rude to us homeless women i would never go there again.They should also have women there it's only for men. They were no help for me and my kids plus they didn't even try to help me find a shelter to stay at. All they did was took my name and put it on a waiting list for housing that takes 3 months to get in so i would have to stay in the streets for 3 months with my kids. Security officers were also rude. No help in Atlanta at all for homeless women or kids.
