Salvation Army / homeless shelter

Review updated:

I've recently become homeless not because of eviction due to failure to pay my rent nor any fault of my own. I've gone to the salvation in Hillsborough County, Tampa, FL. I have been treated with pure disgust. The staff judged me based on my appearance and made me feel even worse than I did when I walked in. As I'm in tears the woman is telling me that I must have done something to deserve it ppl dont just get put out for no reason. Then she told me that there was nothing they can do for me and I had to leave. I went to the salvation army emergency shelter and the woman there told me I don't look like I belong there which made me feel like I shouldn't be. I went to these ppl for help and was dismissed. I would like to know How can I file a formal complaint? These ppl should not be in their positions

    Your did not explain the real reason you had to leave, so without knowing that from both sides it is impossible to evaluate.
    One thing I do understand is from the results of college students staying in my house. (I am making no profits, just trying to meet expenses.) One I am always inclined to lock the door from because his room is a horrible mess and I will lose a lot of money after he leaves just to clean and fix things. Now if I forced him to leave, he would argue no reason simply because he just never learned how to take care of things. What I know he is totally blind about.

    We ALL have responsibility, regardless of capability. That we must recognize, or can never advance.
