Homeless residents in Brooklyn may not get automatic shelter under new court ruling
Some homeless residents in Brooklyn now have to find an alternative to homeless shelters under a new court ruling.
A state judge ruled Tuesday that the city no longer has to automatically provide emergency shelter to homeless families who re-apply for shelter within 90 days after a rejected application.
The city is still required to provide emergency shelter if a family?s circumstances have changed. However, a family must provide certain facts such as being evicted.
