If you have stayed in this shelter, how was your stay?

  1. Well, the thought of getting a shower and sleeping in a bed was the greatest! If you can make it through half the staff and them breaking confidentiality and preventing you from find a place to live. The funding for rent and deposit the majority of us don't get cause when it comes down to it they want 30 days proof of income then the fact of you getting thrown out before you get anything completed.
