Homeless Shelter’s Expected Shift from Women to Men Alarms Some Residents

Article here. Excerpt:

'The shift to housing men, however, is clearly creating some anxiety. “Great efforts have been made over the years to make the womens transitional shelter a part of OUR COMMUNITY and DHS wants to change that balance completely,” says a poster taped around the neighborhood.

The community board website notes that DHS wants to switch the popuation “due to the significant increase in the adult-single male population asking for shelter.”'
