is there a number I can call that is a higher up to Lori in Ozark mo I was constantly herrassed by management and Lori threaten to call social services on me they constantly belittle me and made where my children could not play outside I've had staff members tell my oldest son to shut up and nothing was done.. my kids was asleep and they said that my kids was unsupervised but I was relaxing from a long day from dealing with responsibility of four children so I smoked in my car and got something to eat in the kitchen but still was not enough.. my youngest son had to use the bathroom while waiting for my oldest son to get off the bus and they got on to me for that completely not professional- do not go to Ozark you will regret it I'm not the only person who has problems with management here-they won't even give me the number to the higher ups there cause they know what they are doing is wrong

I teach REFIT, a dance fitness program, at the shelter. We believe in community and enriching the heart. I want the women and kids to have a great time, dancing to fun music and getting their minds off the stressful situation they've been through. I so enjoy the smiles and hugs. Knowing its made them feel good for an hour, plus a healthy bonus included. Gayle Maples, REFIT Instructor
