    Poor. Service. No respect for people that are in dire circumstances.

    A rough environment. They need licensed social workers on site 24 hours a day. The individuals they admit require more care and supervision than is offered. Staff needs to be less punitive and more interactive. I had to go to this organization as I had experienced domestic violence. It was a less than supportive environment and I felt unsafe. This shelter should be investigated and closed down.
