Addabbo Glendale Homeless Shelter ‘Ill-Conceived’

State Senator Joe Addabbo released a statement on the Glendale homeless shelter: “Here we are again, fighting the mayor’s office on yet another ill-conceived homeless shelter plan in our community. After we thought that the Cooper Avenue site was off the table, the Department of Homeless Services (DHS) has now apparently brought it back into the discussion and looks to be headed towards trying to open a shelter there. I stand with my constituents and am appalled at the mayor’s complete lack of transparency, not just with the Cooper Avenue site, but also with many sites across Queens—including the Ozone Park shelter proposal. I will make it clear that the mayor cannot just come into our neighborhoods and plop homeless shelters in inadequate locations and with little to no services to help the homeless transition out of these shelters. This fight has just begun.”
