Drop-in centres for the homeless set for St Thomas and Trelawny
Created : 17 February 2019
The Government has allocated some $28 million in the 2019-2020 fiscal year to complete construction of two drop-in centres for homeless persons in the parishes of St Thomas and Trelawny.
The money has been set aside in the 2019-2020 Estimates of Expenditure that are now before the House of Representatives.
Under the Assistance to Homeless (Street Project), which is being implemented by the Local Government and Community Development Ministry, the drop-in centres will be used to assess, feed, treat, counsel and otherwise care for the homeless.
