Sammon build is the worst shelter for homeless woman the apartment are nice but the staff could care less about the woman they try to get the families children taken away by making false acs reports. The director crystal standish has a history at the sammon build failing reports on tents because she feels shes has the power to get there children taken away from them. They need a whole knew staff. Staff members should be drug tested and crystal standish and mr McMillan should be fired i would investigate before i donate
