The worst homeless shelter- is C.I.S.S.!!

Update by user Dec 15, 2017

Don't ever go to this emergency shelter!- for single women an men! And for adult families!

Its horrible!- in down town does Moines,Iowa! Its still the same!- today- nasty and filthy dirty! And overcrowded!- so bad u will have to sleep on chairs and on the tables!!! And the dorms are disgusting for both men and women!

And the bathrooms are terrible! Very unsanitery,and the staff is the worst! Mean cruel! And heartless!- who treat the homeless like your in jail!

But more by doing searches on u everyday! Its ridiculous! Even jail its not that much! And u will get no help for housing!- your on your own with that!

And there's bedbugs in there!!! And they make u do chores! If u don't they punish u for it!!?

Its not worth it! Avoid it!!!

This is the most disgusting homeless shelter for women and men to go to! Dont come to this one if u are homeless- in des moines, iowa! Its a diagrace there! Its worst then being in jail!! They search u- and more than they should which is humiliating! And they wake u up too early! When its still dark outside!- and everyday! U get no breaks in there! And the workers and staff is pathetic- no help at all- to get u into permanent housing! And they dont even care! Which majes it worse! And their rules to put u out- its ***! And unfair! And the shelter dorms for both women and men to sleep at- is nasty- and dirty! And the bathrooms are terrible! And they got bedbugs too! So AVOID This one! Its the worst shelter in the world!!! In everyway!

I will never- ever go there again! C.I.S.S.

is horrible!- and a nightmare! Oh and people there- who are homeless- have to sleep on uncomfortable- chairs and at the tables! When they run out of vacancies! Beware!

This place should be shut- down! There are better shelters to go to!!!
