Keep Ella McQueen Reception Center Open
Proposed fast-track closure of the Ella McQueen Reception Center for Boys and Girls in Brooklyn with only 30 days notice instead of the 12 months required by current law.
Allowing closure of this OCFS facility with a scant 30 day notice thwarts the law and does a disservice to the young clients, the community and the dedicated PEF staff working there. The closure of any state facility merits the careful consideration required by the law.
