I would suggest examining the European model of STAFFED toilet facilities.
When traveling in Europe (especially Turkey), I was impressed
as to how some (not all) of the attendents took great pride in "ownership" of
This would help by:
1. Addressing the safety issue
2. Homeless clientele would have contact with someone (the attendent) who
could be available for referral and assistance if they were ready to leave
3. The facility would be kept clean and welcoming (for ALL users).
4. If run by a homeless advocacy group, it could be a point for education of
all who use it.
