ID like to know why it is that everything at that place is all about men ?do they not care about homeless women and children.everytime i see them in the news paper .its about what they are doing for men ,men, men, men, thats it nothing about what hey are doing to help families or to help single women with kids .why is it men can stay for months on end and women or families have to leave after 1-2 weeks? it says that the farm is to help reunite a husband or father with loved ones in the book. what about a husband that is with his wife and kids and they are homeless together? what about them why is it they dont care about those people and only single men?

They don't give a rat's ads about women or kids. They help out men and that is it. Men can stay up to nine months but women only get two weeks and then they have to leave. And they also have a dikey daughter that is married and works in the thrift store with some fat . Man that isn't her husband. But they spend a lot of time together. Fishy if u ask me. The whole bunch of them that work and and that place are nothing but scam artists.

I suppose it's just as well. I wouldn't want men and women to stay in the same building (or at least in the same PART of the building) either. Privacy issues aside, some people just don't know how to conduct themselves around the opposite gender and it opens up doors for sexual harassment issues.

Maybe u should read it again. It has nothing to do with them not staying in the same building. It is the fact that men get to stay nine months and women and kids get only two weeks.where is the logic in that.makes no sense. Betty and larry self won't be going to heaven they are greedy and just like their name selfish.

Oh boohoo. One place decides to cater to men versus the thousands of resources available exclusively for women and somebody decides to bitch about it. A friend of mine had to stay at the mission to get away from his psycho bitch girlfriend who was on drugs and threatening to kill him. Genesis wouldn't help and neither would the police. Believe it or not, men can be victims of domestic violence too. Nobody gives a shit about them, though and anybody who does gets labeled a sympathizer or apologetic.

Cookeville has zero men shelters you idiot. Sure men have a place to find help...if they're willing and able to drive 40+ miles. Nobody said that anybody told the mission they were a domestic violence victim. They said their friend stayed there. That's it. It's pretty pathetic that someone has to check into a homeless shelter to get refuge from an abusive partner. You also seem to be under the impression that a place to stay is the same as a safe house. It's not. Genesis will bend over backwards to help women. There isn't a place outside of Nashville or Knoxville that will do the same for abused men. There are, however, plenty of places that will report men for trying to defend themselves and tell women that it was his fault that she beat the shit out of him...including Genesis House.

As a female with a male friend who has been subjected to atrocious violence by his ex, your double standards and apparent disregard/ignorance towards the subject of domestic violence against mean is sickening. We can't fix domestic violence until we stop pretending that 40% of the victims don't exist.

In Jackson County horticultural therapy means getting serviced by a cultured hore. A cultured hore is one that made it all the way through the 8th grade

Sweet cheeks, just get your GED, keep your vagina closed and myob. The rest of us are getting tired of your insane babbling. Don't worry about Betty and Larry. They're not your concern. I'm sure God is so proud of your Christian-like behavior and will be holding those o

Having a male best friend who was almost killed by his girlfriend, I think you're a crock of horse shit. One gender is not more important than the other. And what about single fathers? Please kindly keep your ignorant opinions to yourself.

Oh, and f-.ck off.

i read on here that one gender is not more important then the other.which is very true im not saying its not.however 90% of the time it is a woman that has the children.and yes children should come first.so when a single man by himself has a chance to spend up to 9 months there and a woman with a child has 2 weeks.sorry but its wrong.a woman alone ok fine give her 2 weeks i don't care.but when you have kids involved that's different.
