Suffolk United is standing united

to put an end to the Mega Homeless Shelters (motels)

in our community and in Suffolk County

 

These shelters are housing numerous out-of-state residents and will be a financial burden on our community.

Imagine your family being forced to live in a small hotel room with no kitchen.

Q: Who benefits from this?

A: The motel owner makes tons of money and CHI makes out nice as well.

Q:Does the Homeless families themselves benefit?

A: Not at all. They are warehoused in tiny motel rooms and are under the spotlight as soon as they walk out.

If you are on welfare in another state and you fail the drug test you are dropped from the system. The next step is to come to NY and you will be paid for and catered to and you can send your children to a great school district while you stay home and do drugs. What does this mean? This means NY will not only get homeless people from other states but they will get the ones who fail there drug tests in other states. How is this good for Long Island?

  • Will our area become the permanent transient destination for most homeless?
  • Will we be financially drained by these homeless families?
  • Will school services or activities be cut?
  • Will our taxes go up in the future because of this?
  • Will our home values be decreased due to this?
  • The answer to these questions is YES if we lose this battle!

 Suffolk County is focusing on one aspect of a complex problem (Homelessness)  and ignoring others (The School districts and the communities). There decisions and actions are creating a potentially devastating financial burden on these communities. We have a choice who we can vote for and this will not be tolerated any longer.Our power is in our votes.

    I am supporting the homeless. We need to help them obtain appropriate housing where they can blend into the community without being discriminated against. We cannot warehouse them and we need to fight Suffolk County and steve Bellone. ALL communtites need to pitch in and help in our efforts to support and care for the homeless.

    I can’t believe how dangerous it is for those families who are now being housed in the Commack Shelter. There are so many women and children walking up and down Motor Parkway and Wicks Road with strollers and holding hands looking for provisions to bring back to the shelter.

    The closest establishment is a “Gentlemen’s Cub” right next door but children do not belong there. There is a 7-11 and an Applebees restaurant down a bit on Motor Parkway but the trip on foot is terribly dangerous; especially at dinner time with rush hour traffic all around and no safe way to cross the congested 5-lane section of Motor parkway to get there.

    To make matters worse, it’s dark at 4:45pm now because of Daylight Savings making it more difficult to spot pedestrians along that dimly lit stretch of road. Every night as I drive past on my way home from work, I see this same scenario over and over again, wondering if the next time, someone will end up getting seriously injured or worse. It’s really scary…there must be a better way.

    At meeting today we learned that there are 565 family’s ( in Suffolk)that are homeless. 379 family’s are located in 2 square miles Our area has more than 65 percent This is an unfair burden to one community and one area. Suffolk County is in clear violation of its own laws of 12 family’s per shelter and in violation of Town code.

      Exactly! It’s too big for one community. These shelters need to be shut down and replaced with smaller facilities spread throughout the county. We need to protect our neighborhood and our home values.

    Is there anyone interested in fundraising through the community in order to hire an attorney. I don’t see how our government will act on their own to enforce the laws they are breaking. We need to start legal action.
