“Most of the people who ate are the forgotten and hiding in plain sight, you only see them when something bad happens. It was nice to provide them services that I sometimes take for granted or don't even think about. It also helps me to remember how blessed I am. The staff was awesome and extremely helpful, their attitudes are GREAT.”
