Atlantic Yards Projects Forces Homeless Shelter to Close

The Pacific Dean Homeless Shelter, located in Prospect Hight Brooklyn, will be closing next week to make way for apartment towers which won’t be developed for several years. In the meantime the space will be used to store construction vehicles. Approximately 80 families currently reside in the shelter. According to the Department of Homeless Services most of the families have been placed into permanent housing with the remaining families to be placed in alternative shelters.
