  • The staff is dedicated and I saw no filthy conditions whatsoever. They are doing renovations with new tile, paint, lighting, etc.
    I wonder if that is what the remark was about? I am a temporary volunteer that is only there for 10 hours a week. I have been very impressed with what I have seen.
