Consumer Council Non-Violent Statement: ShelterCare is a non-violent community. As a community which strives to be safe and respectful, we do not support gossiping, talking about other people, making fun of other people, or sarcastic remarks. We make every effort to address our issues with other people directly and privately. If we’re not able to do this, we seek support to improve our problem-solving skills. We are kind, caring and compassionate with each other. We do not support any acts of violence in our community, including swearing, yelling, harassing, threatening, hitting, hurting oneself or others, or making anyone a victim of our behavior. ShelterCare is a non-violent, safe, and respectful community.
