Silent Voices declares victory in opposing another homeless shelter for Harlem:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Community Triumphs as Luxury Condo Resists Shelter Implementation

HARLEM, NY, MARCH 18,2024 – In a remarkable turn of events, the community surrounding 2201 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd has prevailed in resisting the implementation of a shelter within their midst. Currently, two vans are stationed outside the building, removing items as the organization slated to move in, Children’s Rescue Fund, concedes defeat in the face of overwhelming community opposition.

The rejection of the shelter proposal signals a resounding victory for the local residents, who stood united against the encroachment of the shelter into their luxury condo complex. The pushback, directed towards Mayor Eric Adams, the Department of Social Services (DSS), and the Department of Homeless Services (DHS), showcases the power of grassroots activism in shaping urban development.

“We are thrilled to see the strength of our community in action,” remarked Tiffany Fulton, Executive Director of Silent Voices United, Inc, a vocal advocate against the shelter. “This outcome demonstrates that when residents come together to protect their neighborhood, they can effect positive change.”

The successful resistance underscores the importance of community engagement and highlights the need for transparent and inclusive decision-making processes in matters of urban planning and social services.
