Cuomo Seeking Resolution to City Homelessness Funding Impasse
“UPDATED | New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pursuing a resolution to an impasse with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in the city’s attempt to secure access to state funds to launch a new program to help the homeless move out of shelters, an aide to the governor said Wednesday.
Mr. Cuomo “is trying to actively resolve the homeless issue,” the governor’s aide said. “He has worked on homeless issues nationwide and is exploring different ways to resolve this problem.”
The state budget, as proposed by Mr. Cuomo, specifically bars the city from receiving state funds to create a new rental-subsidy program……”
COUNCIL OF HOMELESS NEW YORKERS, (COHONY) REPLIES:
Governor Cuomo is not only a good man, but intelligent and smart too and we are glad he is seeking a resolution to the City’s homelessness impasse
The truth is that true power lies in the hands of the people.
All the problems in the society can be solved.
New York City is already spending enough money (more than $1 billion) to address the homeless problem in New York City.
The problem is that much of that money is being embezzled and squandered by the criminal and fraudulent service providers and organizations contracted by New York City Department Of Homeless Service, (DHS) because of their incompetence and lack of supervision and the audit of their contractors.
Coalition For The Homeless was created to help monitor the shelters and be able to make DHS aware or these problem so they can be rectified.
But all that it focuses in doing is Callaghan inspection, during which they inspect the newly painted walls and scrubbed floors. As long as they are clean, they declare the shelter in compliance.
They never inspect the clients or interview them.
Even when clients take the trouble to visit their office and file complaints, they jerk the clients around.
We don’t know one single homeless man in New York that this coalition has helped to solve any problem with the shelter.
And yet they claim they are advocating for the shelter and use this claim to get funding and grants.
Ms. Brosnahan, the President and CEO is a fine woman.
But please Ms. President when was the last time you visited any of these DHS shelters, specifically Delta Manor, (at 1530 Beach Ave, Bronx, Phone: 718-409-2815,) the most dysfunctional, corrupt and criminal of all the DHS shelters and interviewed the homeless clients to know if they are getting the services they are supposed to get and their problems with the shelter?
And if you have never done this, how then do you know their problems?
And if you don’t their problems, how then do you advocate for and help them to justify the millions of dollars that your group uses them and their plights to obtain?
If you’re not part of the solution, then you must be part of the problem, Ms. President.
Thousands of homeless people including families now are so disgruntled and fade up with your Coalition that they are now agitating for it to be scrapped since you’re useless to the cause and interest of homeless people in New York City.
Department of Homeless Services, DHS (who are in charge of
the shelters) spend $1 billion dollars annually and yet in one of the shelters
called “Delta Manor,” (at 1530 Beach Ave, Bronx 10460, phone
718-409-2815,) they feed the homeless clients trash and limit them to small 12 oz bottle of water daily. (Not even enough for a puppy!)
Imagine if they can’t provide the homeless clients with
ordinary water, what else are they able to provide? We’re not talking about
soda or orange juice or wine. Just drinking water!
And yet Delta Manor gets more than $245,000,000 annually from DHS to operate this shelter!
Where do all these millions go to? Their bank accounts!
Delta Manor is owned by SCO Family of Services Of Long Island
See their annual budget here:
They receive more than $245,000,000 annually to provide
services to homeless people and yet they have a problem giving ordinary water to them.
They tell them after the one 12 oz allotted bottle of water
for the day that they are allowed, if they are thirsty, they can drink toilet
Delta Manor have 6 staff who are related to the director of
the shelter Ms. Maitland and who come to work and sit down for 16 hrs playing online game, cards, chatting with their girlfriends and boyfriends on the phone, surfing the internet using the office computers and laptops, eating
homeless clients’ food, drinking clients’ water, gossiping and mocking the
clients, calling them derogatory names.
They have no work to do and yet they get paid regular salary
plus the extra 8 hrs double pay for over time!
All complaints to the Department of Homeless Services, DHS
(who contracted these bunch of low life criminal predators, parasites and
uneducated nincompoops; many don’t even have a GED! that victimize homeless people) are neglected.
This was one of the reasons why COHONY was formed because it
is fraudulent for DHS and its gang of criminals service providers (aka
predators and parasite criminals) to use homeless people and their plight to
collect $1 billion annually of tax payers hard earned money that they embezzle and squander.
Can you believe that DHS has about 4000 staff, and all they
do is just calling landlords to rent rat and roach infested rooms to the
4000 is enough personnel to run a few small countries!
And there are a few small countries whose annual budgets are
less than a billion dollars and they live very well, too!
And yet with $1 billion and 4000 staff (who work for 1-2 hrs
daily but get paid for 8hrs) DHS cannot rent a room for a homeless New Yorker.
Many homeless New Yorkers can rent these rooms themselves.
There is no need squandering billions of dollars with 4000
staff just to rent rat and roach infested rooms for homeless people.
Many decline them and prefer to continue living in the
shelters or to live outside elsewhere, despite of all the harassment,
degradation, mockery, insults and exploitation that they experience from these criminal service providers, like Ms. Maitland and her Delta Manor Shelter in the Bronx, New York
(Ms. Maitland is a sadistic militant lesbian who openly talks of how she hates and enjoys hurting men, and carries on lesbian sexual activities in her office (and bathrooms, sometimes,) with her secretary, Abigail who is also a lesbian)
And DHS and their criminal service providers don’t care
because they are paid anyway, no matter what!
About 200 well trained staff with laptops, phones and a list
of landlords in New York City staff can do the job that 4000 present DHS staff find it difficult to do.
And they can do it in less than 6 months instead of 1-10 yrs
it takes the present 4000 staff to do!
And $100 million can help provide job re-training, and also rent
good clean rooms for all the homeless people right now in New York City.
Besides homeless people, there are other members, groups and
institutions in New York City who need help as well, such as toddlers (who need funds to pay for their pre-K schools and day care centers); the senior citizens (whose Senior Citizens homes and Centers are being closed down) ; hospitals (many of which are being closed), nurses and health care professionals (who are over worked and need to be paid more money); high school teenagers, college students (who need grants and loans); teachers
(who need to be trained much better and paid more money to become great
teachers); veterans (many of who are disabled and needs to be paid all the
benefits that were promised them!)
The balance of $800 million that DHS and its gang of
criminal service providers (Like Delta Manor and SCO family Services) embezzle and squander can go a long way to help them.
True power lies in the hands of the people. We all should
stand up united and say to these mad bureaurats, ENOUGH!
Please help us report this to all the elected officials of New York City and state who can take appropriate actions to stop this flagrant
and shameful scam.
Thank you and God bless.
