Then visit WW 2 and look at who funded the Eugenics experiments for nazi germany, Right again, Rockefeller and then visit Eugenics groups today and they are funded by the same Rockefeller who is in cahoots with Rothschild banker zionists. Is this why the powers that be are ordering the arrest of those who help the homeless, or feed them? Is that why they are encouraging us to complain about them hanging around? They can then incarcerate them, and use them for experiments or kill them off as useless feeders?
How come FEMA was placed under Homeland "gestapo" Security? So now the DHS is in charge of the camps and how they are run and determining what their real purpose it. Is it any wonder that cops are being trained to be brutal and murder unarmed citizens? We would never have tolerated that in our past. Our parents would have been down to city all in record numbers. I know, I used to watch them do it and its how I got my inclination to fight evil, just like they were doing.
OK, I will shut up and let you read all this and think about it. Why are they allowing this to happen? Trillions for war and nothing for the homeless they created with their economic manipulation of our country and their fiat currency system in order to bring us down and ensure that we lose their Bogus WW III.
Don't get me started. LOL
NYC homeless population tops 59,000, a record high (graph)
BY Harry Stevens , Greg B. Smith, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Sunday, February 1, 2015
“By mid-December, the homeless census reached a record 59,068 — nearly the population of Utica, city records show. The Coalition for the Homeless says it peaked even higher at 60,352.” Everything NYC
Thousands of New Yorkers living in dangerous 'cluster units' as homeless population tops 59,000, a record highThe homeless count represents a 10% jump during Mayor de Blasio's first year in office. Despite his vows to turn around the problem and ditch the use of cluster units, the city is still forced to house families in these much-criticized apartments, which have often been cited for hazardous code violations.
Since he arrived at City Hall pledging to turn things around, Mayor de Blasio has struggled to confront a long-intractable problem that has only gotten worse.
By mid-December, the homeless census reached a record 59,068 — nearly the population of Utica, city records show. The Coalition for the Homeless says it peaked even higher at 60,352.
The homeless count, according to the city and the coalition, includes 25,000 children. And it represents a 10% jump from the 53,615 in shelters on de Blasio’s Inauguration Day.
To reduce these distressing numbers, the city has tried to move families into scarce permanent housing, but has been forced to continue using much-criticized apartments known as “cluster sites.”
As a candidate, de Blasio vowed to end the use of clusters, which were often cited for outrageous code violations such as collapsed ceilings, lead paint, vermin and busted boilers.
Despite the mayor’s wishes, the city actually increased the number of cluster units in 2014 by nearly 8% — from 2,918 to 3,143. The 225-unit jump was far less than the 1,150 cluster units Bloomberg added in his last two years, but critics were hoping for a total turnaround.
The problems with these units persist.
A computer analysis by the Daily News and Columbia Journalism School’s New York World found that as of Dec. 31, at least 27 current cluster sites had at least two serious housing-code violations per apartment.
The homeless count, according to the city and the coalition, includes 25,000 children.
Since then, some of these buildings have cleared some violations while others have racked up even more, records show.
These violations plague the aging tenement buildings where about a dozen nonprofit groups hired by the city choose to locate tenants.
Buildings leased by the biggest providers — including the Bushwick Economic Development Corp., Acacia Network and Camba Inc. — have accumulated hundreds of open-code violations, records show. None of the groups returned calls seeking comment.
All of these nonprofits rake in millions of dollars from the city, state and feds each year. Meanwhile, many regularly place families in units with bugs, peeling paint, collapsed plaster and spotty heat, records show.
All told, The News/Columbia analysis identified 6,767 serious code violations in 224 city-funded cluster sites across the five boroughs as of Dec. 31.
For single mother Dana Hollis, 48, her placement in a 50-unit building in the Bronx with 63 open serious-code violations as of Friday has been a disaster.
Eleven of her 12 children are living in the three-bedroom where she was placed. Each sibling in the home — ages 5 to 23 — has a bunk bed, with the girls sharing one room and the boys sharing another. Everybody uses one bathroom.
Six of her children still attend public school near where she used to live in Brooklyn, so they get up extra early for the 80-minute, cross-borough trek. They line up for showers the night before, then she’s up at 4:30 a.m. to get them out the door by 6:15.
In July, the bathroom ceiling collapsed on one son while he was taking a shower. When upstairs tenants’ kids run, the lights flicker and go out. The front-door handle fell off last week.
“They got so many violations, it’s not even funny,” she said.
The building is now managed by Acacia, which has $318 million in active contracts with the Department of Homeless Services.
At a recent City Council hearing, the Coalition for the Homeless and the Legal Aid Society urged the city to turn all cluster sites into permanent housing — but first make sure the buildings are up to code.
They demanded “an aggressive building-code enforcement so families that wish to stay in the units they already reside in may secure leases. This would significantly reduce family homelessness and phase out this wasteful program.”
“If de Blasio stands firm in cutting off these horrible landlords and can make good on his promise to move thousands of vulnerable homeless families into permanent housing, that’s a winning combination,” Mary Brosnahan of the coalition said.
In July, the bathroom ceiling collapsed on one son while he was taking a shower. When upstairs tenants’ kids run, the lights flicker and go out.
But during a May hearing, Bronx Councilwoman Vanessa Gibson pressed for even more action, citing the April death of 4-year-old Juan Sanchez, who officials believe ate rat poison at a cluster site in the Bronx.
“I want to find an opportunity where we come to a cluster site Vision Zero,” she said. “Some of the conditions in terms of exterminating and rodent infestation are a major problem.”
Taylor assured Gibson that after Juan’s death, every cluster unit was inspected. But he also made clear that replacing all cluster sites is “going to take some time.”
Meanwhile, Taylor has doubled the amount spent to keep families facing eviction from becoming homeless, opened 24 new shelters that now house 1,879 families and begun placing more working families in permanent units through a new program called Living in Communities.
Taylor has clearly rejected the tactics of Bloomberg, who saw the homeless census rise from 30,000 to 50,000 during his 12-year tenure.
But change has come slowly, hampered by delays in getting state funds, landlords demanding higher subsidies and a slow start moving tenants into NYCHA apartments.
The city, for instance, wasn’t able to start its LINC program until September. Then it had a tough time finding willing landlords until they raised the monthly subsidy from $1,000 to $1,500 for a one-bedroom in November.
In de Blasio’s first year at City Hall, 13,302 family members entered shelters while only 7,978 exited. That was about the same rate as Bloomberg’s last year, when 11,754 entered and 7,559 exited.
“New York City continues to face pronounced economic inequality,” Taylor said in response to queries by The News. “The reality of this income inequality manifests itself in the city’s shelter system.”
In an interview Friday, Taylor’s boss, First Deputy Mayor Anthony Shorris, said with the reforms under way, the city anticipates a significant downturn in people entering shelters by the end of this year.
“The rate of people coming in is about the same. The problem has been the rate of people going out,” he said.
“It’s still way too high and until we can find more permanent housing and decent places people can afford, we’re going to continue to face challenges.”
“We know we have to turn the tide,” he added. “We know that’s going to take a while.”
