Is this a safe shelter to stay in?

User Answers

  1. Regarding safety—yes and no. Smokers get away with smoking in the rooms, endangering everyone’s life. Some foods have no expiration labeled dates. Staff tries to make their own rules in order to gain control over clients.

    The staff is on whole very courteous and respectful . There is a tall thin African-American gentleman of about 40 who works in the kitchen who goes beyond and above to accommodate the residents. The DHS police are very hard working and respectful. The only complaint is the security firm.They have proved to be rude and discriminatory

    Rules can shape a place which in turn allow changes be made. In this building people are not allowed to bring food or cleaning supplies etc. in the rooms understandably, to prevent bugs, rodents, and for safety reasons. These rules supposed to keep everyone safe. Yet, still smokers are allowed to bring cigarettes to their rooms, smoke comfortably while in bed, triggering the smoke alarm too often, risking everyone’s life in the building. That doesn’t make sense at all. Given the history of this place, random inspection of the entire building so now and then, would be highly appreciated!
