Depends on whose there. do not go there on tuesday evening, sick asking for a couple of pieces of soap. Coughing up green for two days, could barely talk and informed the staff as a walk in. A white woman with a lesbianic haircut and gray hair will try to degrade you and give you unnecessary lecture and get you to spill your guts while you're physically suffering. All for a couple of pieces of soap. She'll probably say she's a "Christian" as well. You need some new evening staff/volunteers. There's something to say about treating others with dignity.

Grassroots is Howard County, MD's on 24-hour crisis intervention center and homeless shelter. It is a non-profit that provides day in and day out services for the most vulnerable people in our community, including managing a Day Resource Center for the chronically homeless and a Cold Weather Shelter in area churches when Grassroots facilities are full. Everyday it supports people's decision to get back on their feet through a combination of couseling and referral. It is a remarkable change agent in our community and has helped make us a more compassionate people by engaging hundreds of people in volunteer work, making and serving food, providing clothing, holding events to raise funds, etc.
