Your shelter placement should be safe, healthy and well maintained. If you have concerns regarding the maintenance of your shelter, first tell a shelter staff member about your concerns and write down their response. If conditions do not improve or they are fixed only temporarily, take a few notes including when the problem first began, what the shelter staff have said when you have asked for help, any health problems you or your family have had because of the conditions, and the status of the problem now. Then come in to see an advocate in the Crisis Intervention Program. Your notes are not required, but these details help us to advocate on your behalf.
