Lessons learned during my stay at Sophia’s womens shelter

Womens shelters’ no matter where they’re located are breeding grounds for abuse & negativity.

Trust me,  I speak from experience.  On this one.     For I’ve seen it all.    The bullying,  cliques, constant defeating self talk by the female residents,  the indifference by the shelter staff who in all intents &purposes could really care less if you find a permanent home or not,  because after what I laughingly call the shelter staff & case managers have somewhere to sleep at night.   Lazy & don’t give a damn.

Staff takes a personal (or discrimination) dislike at times with certain residents ,so before one notices the staff has kicked your unsuspecting ass out in the streets.    If you contest?   the Police will get called.   It happened one evening at a S.W emergency shelter when a homeless woman who was issues one measeley floor mat to sleep.   On the floor with. Had requested another mat.


What I learned during my homeless shelter stay part 2

So the lady who had requested the extra mat discovered extra floor mats dozens of them not being used when the lady attempted to use an extra mat?  The staf nazi’s called the cops.   Here the cops have their hands full tormenting & murdering young black men when they receive a call about a damn mat!

Here are some helpful tips if your homeless & having to live in these hell holes that pass as a safe shelter.

Get an outside social worker, because the shelter case managers are useless

Try not to stay too long

Don’t socialize with any of the homeless women.  Period.  Shelter women are crazy.
