    It wouldve been nice to have more of an idea of what was going on. Now i know what this shelter is and its beautiful, the mission and all. But at the time i was very confused, Counseling didnt do to much for me we never really got to deep into anything i feel. And i never learned of any transitional programs in my month or two there, which wouldve been very helpful. However the staff was very caring, the food was good, and they provide you with transportation (i.e. bus pass) and clothes, toiletries, etc.
