Add Shelter Info
Shelter definition: Any location, church, school, etc, that provides services and shelter.
From “Shelter” tab or default page:
Click “Add New Shelter”
Call the shelter while looking at the page, and enter all information that is available. Give as much detail as possible and cite the source. If you know this information outside of having a direct contact, enter as much information as you have. At a minimum, a working phone number and address of the location would be useful.
Add Non-shelter Info

Click “Needs” tab.
Click “Add New Need”.
Enter all info. Give as much detail as possible and cite the source.
If a location is already in the database:
Find the entry and scroll all the way to the right.
