Taylar writes: DHS & Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago of Washington are trying to keep people from engaging with the women at King GreenLeaf because they know the site is over capacity and that they’re forcing the women out of the shelter during the day with no access to bathrooms and thus have to relive themselves on the side of the building.
