The homeless shelter, which DHS plans to open in 60 days, would lodge 110 families or 220 people. The shelter would be restricted to people over 18, so if there is a parent with a child it would have to be an adult child. In the meeting, the DHS stated that the residents would be homeless people whose last address was within the confines of Community Board 5.
[CB5 Chairman Vincent] Arcuri mentioned that the DHS said there is a model that would incorporate senior housing and a homeless shelter. If the community can find a place where the DHS can put that model, the residency would be dropped down to 35 families or 70 people, if combined.
Ok so we already know that the first part is a lie. Now how about the second part? Is there a need to shelter 110 families or only 35? Why the hell would we want our grandparents housed alongside drug addicts and mentally unstable people?
