Would you recommend St. Martin de Porres Shelter?

by Charles S. from Seattle, WA (November 24, 2008)
I have personally witnessed the tremendous work that this agency does in providing shelter to >200 men who otherwise would not have a place to stay during the night. I hope this facility is able to continue its great work during these difficult economic times. Most of the staff are dedcicated to assisting those in need.
