A poster with info about shelters for the homeless. Been in one or two of these. No, don’t get excited, not as a client, not quite yet, not unless the trend continues. Clean and comfortable but rules are strict and enforced. You are either in before 9 or 10pm or stay out. If you stagger or smell of alcohol, you are out. But if you comply and behave like a respectable citizen, warm space, basic facilities, and simple but plentiful food is there for you. No one from what I know is denied admission.
True, they tend to be far away and a a bitch to find but if you are in a true and real fix a special van will come out and get you. If you are down and out BUT MANAGED TO STAY SANE help is available even in Moscow.
Also listed in this poster is where the homeless can get washed, eat, and receive clothing.
I’VE SEEN AT LEAST ONE CASE WHEN A FOREIGN TRAVELLER, AN AMERICAN, WAS SICK AND WITH NO MONEY OR OTHER RESOURCE, AND VERY CLOSE TO BEING LEFT ON THE STREET. THE ABOVE IS REPRODUCED NOT ONLY FOR ITS ENTERTAINMENT VALUE.
