Mike: So the shelter I stay at has been really helpful, of course it’s a safe place to stay but also I get to talk to people, and I made a couple friends. Oh, HEVI has also helped me a lot, gave me some extra help for me to get through the week.
D: I think before I got to my current shelter, I was bouncing between a few other ones, and I think those really helped me with just everyday things.
Anon 1: Yea, back when I was on the street, CityTeam helped me a bit with the food situation. Every week or so they would park a truck, like a few walks down the block, and they gave out stuff like basic needs like food, clothing, and hygiene items.
Anon 2: The shelter I stay at, I’m very grateful. They give me food, shower, etc.
