St. Stephen’s updates.

The St. Stephen’s shelter continues to be a decent place to sleep, but not without some problems. Last night, they had no pillows for me. In addition to that, according to other residents there was no hot water after the dinner service (they were doing a lot of laundry and dishes).

The dinner service is fairly good. First Christian Church volunteered last night.

On the other hand, the check in times remain uncertain. Currently, only the 5:30-6:30 pm check in time seems solid. Early check in times are not necessarily viable.

Lately, we are getting kicked out very early during the weekday. I’m doing the early breakfast at Branch 3. No time to sleep in during the weekdays.

We did already receive our Christmas gifts today. It was a hat, a water bottle from Walgreens, a pocket comb, and some basic amenities (deodorant).

Still staff is friendly and other shelter residents are great.

The lottery is tomorrow at Simpsons.
