I’ve read comments and heard people say that they don’t like to graduate from the shelter because places like this are even worse…no kidding, really?

  • AWESOME INSIGHT. We are moving full steam ahead on Cleaning Up the SRO’s and we really admire your work.

    Hope you do not mind if we borrow this ‘tool’ (pullng 911 calls) in order to shed much more light on HOW EXPENSIVE THEY ARE TO TAXPAYERS when Managers of these SRO’s are being told BY THE BUILDING OWNERS to NOT CALL POLICE to STOP THE DRUG DEALING & VIOLENCE.

    We need more STAFF that work at these hotel/SRO’s and STAFF that work INSIDE THE SRO MANAGEMENT OFFICES to IGNORE BAD BOSSES that tell them TO DO THE WRONG THING to help HIDE CRIME & ABUSE.

    On the contrary. We need MORE SRO STAFF WITH COURAGE to STAND UP TO BAD BOSSES and DO THE RIGHT THING BY THE PEOPLE.

    WHY ?

    BECAUSE ‘DOING THE RIGHT THING’ MAKES US ALL SAFER. IT SAVES LIVES. AND ITS CHEAPER FOR TAX PAYERS WHEN YOU HAVE RESPONSIBLE STAFF AND MANAGEMENT WILLING TO ‘STEP UP’ AND HELP US REDUCE VIOLENCE, CRIME & DRUG PUSHING INSIDE OF OUR TAX FUNDED SRO’S AND HOMELESS SHELTERS…..

    T-H-A-N-K—Y-O-U for STANDING UP and SPEAKING OUT AGAINST BADLY MANAGED TAX FUNDED SRO’S AND SHELTERS.

    WE NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU ! ! ! !

    ATTENTION SRO STAFF & RESIDENTS:

    Help Us Save Lives & Tax Dollars by emailing us with YOUR TIPS, PHOTOS, VIDEOS about badly managed SRO’s, Shelters and the Neglectful or Corrupted Management and Staff that Manage these places.

  • AWESOME INSIGHT. We have a lot of home-less friends living inside of these SRO’s that have been telling us the same thing.

    SOME SRO’s have good management and it SHOWS! Others DO NOT and that shows as well. We’ve just learned that the MISSION HOTEL has NOT CHANGED even though the Norteno Gang Member was finally ousted by the Tenderloin Housing Clinic. WHY DOES THC PERMIT THE ABUSE, VIOLENCE AND DRUG ACTIVITY TO CONTINUE – UN-ABATED AT THEIR PROPERTIES ?

    IF THEY CARED ABOUT THE ELDERLY, SICK, POOR AND HOME-LESS RESIDENTS, THEY WOULD TAKE A REAL LEAD (NOT A FAKE ONE LIKE HAVING ‘TENANT REPS’ PAID/SUPPORTED BY MGMT. WHO DO NOT HAVE THE RESIDENT’S BEST INTERESTS AT HEART)BUT SINCE THIS ACTIVITY CONTINUES AND OUR PEOPLE KEEP GETTING BEAT UP AND ARE DYING FAST IN THESE PLACES, WE MUST WORK TOGETHER AND NOT WAIT FOR BUILDING OWNERS OR THE CITY TO DO THEIR JOBS RIGHT.
