It is beyond obvious that every reviewer is a board member. This is the worst shelter as far as actual services provided. The food served at breakfast and lunch will give you diabetes, if it doesn't poison you. Case managers have for the most part no knowledge of services available to help people. The management get large salerys, when it is supposed to be a non profit. Theft of V.A. funds to the tune of several million dollars, the loss of the C.R.R.C. program for instance. Even if a "client" hasn't used their services in 10 years they will be considered a client forever.
