    I was a resident at one time. I wanted to know if I could volunteer by giving haircuts to the men not for free but for 1$per person so they won't feel like it's a handout and it may encourage them while they are going through the storm. I also am able to volunteer by sea meal or cleaning ashower or rest room.

    This is by far worse than prison. dirty isn't the word. not one staff member works here and they treat us bad. All they are here for is a check you can't hire no educated people to help the homeless. No heat, no hot water. These people don't realize how some of us are really sick. I'm a grown man and staff person disrespects me. 5 mins late for dinner? you go hungry. This place is worse than state road.
