Our Quality of Life
Dept. of Homeless Services Commissioner Robert Hess and representatives of the Mayor's Office will be on hand to discuss the proposed seven-story homeless intake center on 151st Street and Walton Avenue at tonight's Community Board 4 Public Hearing.
Tonight at 7 p.m.
Hostos Community College, Savoy Multi-Purpose Room
120 E. 149th St. (at Walton Avenue)
Senator Jose M. Serrano is opposed to the project, which would be the only homeless family intake center in the city. He believes it is unjust and impractical to force homeless families from as far away as Brooklyn and Staten Island to travel to the South Bronx for intake.
Serrano instead supports a homeless intake system "that is truly decentralized, with well-administered and appropriately-sized facilities in each borough - especially Manhattan."
