BROOKLYN - Neighbors are outraged at a proposal to build a supportive housing facility in Prospect?Lefferts.

The non-profit group Providence House and another group called Community Access want to build a facility at 329 Lincoln Road that would house women who are recently released from prison and their children.

Residents say they are concerned the building would change their quality of life in the community and be out of scale with the other buildings in the area.
