Folks in Jamaica who care about the quality of life issues, including the “dumping” of dozens of homeless shelters in the community should attend this. This is the kind of thing that so-called leaders like that idiot Rev. Charles Norris Sr. should be promoting, especially considering that yet another homeless shelter of single men (many parolees) is being proposed above the House of Prayer Church (91-20 146 St) right next door to a day care center and the LIRR Sutphin Blvd Station, like we don’t have enough deadbeats hanging out in that area. This “storefront” church is in cahoots with the Forest Hills “For Profit” group, Transition One LLC. Notice that this proposal is not taking place in Melinda Katz’s hood of Forest Hill, but the Jamaica community yet again.

Pass this along to those interested and care about this community, which is already a ghetto mess and being turned into a homeless encampment.
