The Crossroads Shelter isn't that bad, as far as things go. My waste time was in Philadelphia. In PVD I'm a human being. I missed getting a better sleeping area so I was in the community room and they have mats AND blankets. I haven't had that in a long time.
The clients were more of a problem than the staff and my only issue was them is that they were loud after lights out. They actually laugh with each other and have fun instead of being mean and trying to infect each other negativity. Of course there are some bad apples, but the bunch is a pretty decent crowd, so fear.
The staff is decent. At worst, a C- as far as I see.
I'm glad to be in that shelter than a lot of others, so fear.
I'm going to go to a different shelter after I came back from Boston!
