On Thursday New Rochelle Housing Authority held a public hearing concerning amendments to their yearly plan.

DSS Commissioner: People At Oasis Don't Ask for Help, Conference on Homelessness Part 2


At the conference on Tuesday, there were several ideas to have various outreach teams approach homeless in the downtown. Talking to the homeless is a good idea but the current programs have to be fixed before outreach is a priority. People seem to think that if they tell homeless to go inside it will solve everything.

Hope Community Services Director Interferes With A Criminal Investigation (People are Getting Hurt)


I don't know how professional this one is going to be folks, because I am really really fed-up and angry. I am not going to beat around the bush any more. The shelter is corrupt, incompetent and incapable if running a day program or any other program for that matter, but Hope is not doing it's job either and is proving itself to not be much better.
