From the NY Post:
The city has ousted the contractor providing social services to homeless families housed at more than a dozen Manhattan hotels.
Children’s Community Services was quietly replaced in July with Acacia Network Housing.
The city pays hotels directly for rooms to house the homeless while it contracts with nonprofits to hire case managers who are supposed to help clients find permanent housing, apply for benefits and offer referrals for child care and other services.
A spokesman for the Department of Homeless Services would not explain why the group had been booted.
From DNA Info:
The Best Western location is being run by Childrens Community Services, a social-services provider that's offering things like job placement and financial planning to those staying at the hotel. The site has 24-hour security and a 9 p.m. curfew, a representative for the group told CB2.
Here you can watch Amanda Nasner, DHS representative and representatives from Children's Community Services at a recent CB2 meeting. Good for the community for asking tough questions.
Meanwhile, in other LIC housing news, Jimmy Van Bramer told NYCHA residents that he is actually willing to listen to them on rezonings. Astounding!
