Re: “Partners in Housing restores hope for families on the edge

I did not have a good experience with this organization. We qualified up until the face to face interview, and then we were told we do not qualify. That shows they didn't like our looks or something. Regardless, we were homeless, my husband has two Masters, I have an Associates, and they wouldn't even tell us why. They didn't have to they said. Anyhow, I am glad there are some people they help. That is a good thing.

Re: “Care and scare

I cannot keep silent about the paragraph about Good Shepard Church in Security and the people that come there to receive food.I have never read such malarky in quite some time. You have to get a number,some people come as early as 5:30a.m.for the 10:00a.m.opening,you stand in line for hours,first outside,then inside.There are no chairs.It is either hot, or cold in the winter.People are young,old,with canes,with strollers.Some are quiet,some are not,but let me assure you people,no one acts like that paragraph says.And if they do,I have never seen it,nor heard of it,so it must be pretty freaking few and far between.People are respectful,social,and follow the rules.Of course they monitor the food, everywhere does, you just can't say " go for it", you would have complete pandemonium.You know,for the time one has to stand there,and frankly the way some of the volunteers treat you,I think that EVERYONE I have seen is definitely going above and beyond the standard capacity of what one would usually have the patience for. I just wanted people to know desperation doesn't equal up to the ill behaving manners and thug attitude. And by the way,if someone did steal a light bulb, or took to much toilet paper ( by the way, I have never seen someone hand out toilet paper,geez ) it is because they are a thief, not because they are hungry.
