Re: “Atlanta's largest homeless shelter could soon be shuttered

Im a current resident of this shelter and I can agree with both point of views.....This place is quite nasty...the bathrooms smell so bad you almost puke when you enter them... no one sanitizes the bathrooms..I sprayed lysol throughout the bathrooms and the smell still lingers.....they dont force individuals to shower thus its always musty and the beds stink due to these low lifes without any self respect.....I can say I stay there because I dont know anywhere else to go...I heard about he "Mission" shelter but it seems to be just as terrible....Alot of the older men just sit in chairs all day long and collect free food or argue....Its just a stockpile for homeless people with no real effort to get these men to a independent state again...Its sad because most of these men are old enough to be my dad yet they dont want nothing more out of life but a meal here and there and a roof over there head.
Im staying here because I blew all my money at casinos and now am looking for a job to get out of here...If I had a car I would prefer to sleep in it, its considered luxury if you ask me...I'm trying to figure out where is all the $1.3 million budget going towards because none of it seems to be applied towards the bedding area or cleaning of the building...So sad..I cant wait till I get out of here but at least its somewhere u can stay as a last resort.
