Council members Sandra Ung, Linda Lee, Tiffany Caban and Rita Joseph introduced legislation requiring the Department of Homeless Services (DHS) to make a report on the feasibility of partnering with community-based nonprofit organizations that could accept and process shelter intake applications for families with children.

The law proposed on June 2 would help create more intake centers for families outside of the Prevention Assistance and Temporary Housing (PATH) intake center in the Bronx.
