The Bronx wonders what will become of Just Home plan to house formerly incarcerated individuals as it heads to the City Council

A plan to house formerly incarcerated people with medical issues on an NYC Health + Hospitals campus in the East Bronx is once again coming to the front line of borough politics, with the project’s proponents and opponents gearing up for what will be a hotly discussed topic in the coming months. 

The board of directors at NYC Health + Hospitals voted last week to officially approve their plan, called Just Home, marking the end of more than a year of the sometimes unruly public review process. Now, the project will move forward to the New York City Council, even with its sitting member’s opposition.
