There is absolutely no place available to relieve yourself at 2am when you are sleeping on a bench
The most coveted benches in any park are those nowhere near garbage cans
The best place to rest your legs from walking all over during the day, is a free clinic because everyone there looks as bad as you do and therefore the don’t question your presence
The best food is from the church food banks. The worst food is from the city food banks
Food courts in the mall are the best place to find untouched or nearly untouched food, if you are brave/desperately hungry enough to snag it.
Homeless shelters run by the city are cleaner and nicer than those run by the churches. I know, just the opposite of the food bank situation above.
Condiments from Denny’s, Mcdonalds, Taco Bell etc will keep you alive without solid food for a long time, especially if you can get packets of peanut butter and salsa.
There are more women living in cars, parks and under bridges than you can even imagine
Many homeless people have a cell phone but not food or medicine or access to healthcare
Cemeteries are the safest place to sleep at night
