I went to Fort Smith Arkansas Back on the third of August 2011 with The woman I was Dating. I am Considered Disabled And I ask The staff member to speak up so I could hear them They got about 4 inches from my face and said can you hear me now I ask them to get out of my face. I went to the supervisor and was told I could I stay but after The supervisor went home the homeless shelter person that was on duty got back in my face. I had to find out on my own where the district headquarters was located after I contacted them all they did was to tell me I was barred from fort Smith Arkansas for good because of what they was because of my behavior... The district headquarters told me to contact the corp officer there when I try to contact them all I get told that will return my phone call to my cellphone but they never return My phone call.....I am not the only person that the staff has barred  from going on the property. I am getting Social security  benfits each month I only to stay in the shelter until I got my check in 3 weeks. They let the woman i was dating stay there and word got back to me from other who were staying there @ the time that they told the woman I was dating that if she is caught talking to me off the property they would kick her out. The people who were talking to me off the property were caught talking to me that had to leave the property.

Salvation Army personnel are rude here in Denton Texas!

AUTHOR: ppdntn - (United States of America)

I have experienced rudeness from personnel at the Salvation Army here in Denton, Texas. As has Ann Richards of Saint Andrew Presbyterian Church ( a staff member) and others who are not defensless homeless people. We have youtube videos,and audio recordings of Salvation Army staff acting in a manners not very becoming. Apparently this is not isolated. I was once homeless, stayed at the Denton "sally" and was assaulted by a staff member for "forgetting my shaving kit in the T.V. room. After filing an in house written formal complaint with a witness, I was subsequently later "banned" from staying at the shelter!

I do not go out looking for any trouble.

AUTHOR: Ron - (U.S.A.)

It sounds like you work for the salavation army. I have done some work with the salvation army but never again I  would help in the soup kitchen and when not in the kitchen I would go out and pick up the donations that was donated to the salvation army. Sometime they would have me help with filling the food orders from the pantry. I dont know why said that I was a jerk.

I't have kicked your sorry butt out too.

People trying to help you don't need your abuse..jerk.
