  • "Oftentimes certain agencies that serve the poor and homeless allow the use of their mailing address by individuals to receive mail. This is all well and good, except that there is a distinct possibility of stigmatization and discrimination when these addresses are used (and this goes for their phone numbers as well when they are used as 'message' phones on applications). There is a definite risk that some services and companies (read: employers) within the community who recognize the address as belonging to a shelter or service agency will simply round-file an application for employment or service, leaving the individual in question scratching his/her head and wondering why nothing happens when they apply for a job."
