NY Daily News | May 26, 2017
Five new homeless shelters down — 85 to go.
Almost 90 days after Mayor de Blasio vowed to build a network of 90 new shelters, the city has opened five and plans to meet with shelter providers to talk about next steps, Social Services Commissioner Steve Banks said.
“We appreciate the support of New Yorkers, who are fundamentally compassionate people, and that’s the spirit that’s helped us open five shelters in 90 days,” Banks said in an interview.
