Unlike the other shelters where I’ve stayed in the Boston area, the shelter where I’m staying in Waltham is just a house.  It’s also not surrounded by a lot of other houses and buildings.

It’s much more vulnerable to things like people breaking in, or women being abducted from it; my staying there is endangering the people in it for as long as the stalking and other abuse of me is being encouraged to continue.  I’m in more danger by being there, too.
