    This shelter has alot of good help for men who want to help themselves But the man behind the dor mr Richardson likes to give the men the spin he will tell you what you want to hear but turns around and does nothing at all to help you he's a lot of hot air and he walks away from you when he doesn't want to be confronted this man needs to be replaced he's been here three and a half years it does not know what to do he doesn't know how to put himself in the place at the men at outley house this facility is old and run down thanks to Pro Tools attention and he says it needs to go further up the chain which mind you he is the part of the chain this man again needs to be replaced the sooner the better he calls the people here participants these people do not know what it's like to participate the ones that do do not get any acknowledgement that is a shame because that can go a long way since the end is mr. Richardson needs to be replaced
