    Terrible homeless program. Went there several times only to be told nothing was available except a shelter that can only provide you with a bed for the night and kicks you out all day. So during in climate weather what you supposed to do. My tent provides more shelter but they tell you they don't want you on the street. You're basically on the street all day in majority of what this city provides

    I'd like to know if homeless shelters help homeless men find a place to live while in a shelter.
