I had recently become homeless again in Arizona as a result of the Republican controlled government here who had refused to accept the Federal Money to continue my Extended Benefits thru this summer. This in itself will be addressed in a separate report.
However, last night I entered the CASS overflow shelter for the 3rd night in a row after losing my room which I could not afford after being denied the Extended Benefits offered by the Federal Government.
The gist of this is that I was harassed continously by another homeless person when I entered the shelter. He was egging me on for some kind of confrontation. I attempted to do everything to his liking including putting my smelly shoes under my mat.
However, this kept on until one of the shelter workers insist that I not sit sideways on my mat on the floor. This meant I must sit facing my harassing fellow homeless person in the next mat.
The situation continued until I had enough of it and told the other homeless person who was bothering me to shut up and I yelled it very loudly. I told him "Don't ever talk to me again."
I began walking out because I had enough of this nonsense after 117 degree heat and not having resources to get new shoes and so forth which the harasser apparently though I should have been able to get.
The short of it is that CASS took the side of the harasser and I wound up outside in the worst Dust Storm that many Arizona's have seen in years. I slept on a bus stop because there is no other choice.
Today, my bus pass runs out and I'll truly be "on the street". I attempted to find help at Phoenix Rescue Mission and was turned away from there as well. (More on them in a separate complaint.)
My main desire is to let the world know that facts. If I wind up dead because of this heat and the feeling of being abandoned, then I'd like to have at least gotten a word in.
By the way, a fellow saw me the next day who had overhead the whole thing and he said, "You had every right to get upset and they took his side."
Thanks to Rip-Off Report for allowing me to at least have my say.
