Following a report of another assault at the Cooper Rapid Rehousing Center in Glendale, Councilman Bob Holden is calling for the homeless shelter to be shuttered for good.

Holden issued a statement last week that his office was informed of an another assault at the site.

 

DHS has informed the Glendale pol that they plan to remove all 120 men from the shelter and relocate them to hotel rooms during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While he called the temporary move “welcome news” for the men who live at the shelter, Holden wants the location closed permanently. 

The Glendale representative also asked Comptroller Scott Stringer to not approve the contract and “put an end to the fraud, waste and abuse” of the homeless shelter system.
