  • The structure of the program as well as being available to women that feel alone, abandoned and scared. Hope is what they give. The staff doesn't research the credibility of information provided by an individual outside of the program. Also the staff shows favoritism to women in the program and some that really are doing the right thing end up on the street. This place can help you turn your life around if you do as you are suppose to.
