A couple of months ago I came to Next Door for the first time. Being new to shelter life there have certainly been hiccups but I have unemployment, which helps, and I try to get out of the facility each day and look for a new job so I can continue my life. One of the first things I did when I got there was to get my own blanket. The linen they provide is filthy, scratchy and often urine-stained.

I find myself in China town in the wee hours of the morning now and then,usually when it is warm.I came upon a sight that I will never forget.I was waliking down Waverly when I came upon a Young Asian girl in a Restaurant Alcove picking on the ground.She was taking breaks from ground picking to hit the pipe,the usual crackhead behavior.I was dismayed and then upset.I asked this one old gentleman what's up and got a very candid answer,"she is a whore"and that was upsetting.He was around my age and of the OLD TIMERS mindset straight out of China and he was apathetic to the bone.I wanted to do something,anything! was helpless and besides I have My own issues,but that is not the end of it.I may have walked away that night but I have not walked…Read more >
