From the Times Newsweekly:
Philip Glotzer, the executive director of the AIDS Center of Queens County (ACQC), announced at Community Board 2's Mar. 11 meeting at Sunnyside Community Services that they have submitted an application to run a 40-person homeless drop-in facility at 46-11A 11th St, one of the ACQC's current facilities.
Glotzer told Board 2 that the shelter, should it be approved, is supposed to begin operation July 1 and would operate seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
It would not have beds; a shuttle bus would take them to locations run by churches and synagogues where they could sleep.
"The goal is to get the clients off the streets," said Glotzer, explaining that the facility would offer case management, education, medical help and psychiatric assistance.
In the meantime, the facility would help find those clients temporary shelter.
