“It has been two months since the tragic five-alarm fire at Twin Parks North West Apartments and our team alongside our elected official partners, and nonprofit organizations have been working diligently to ensure the families continue to receive support.

After learning about the gap in food services to impacted families, my office partnered with The Hoodspitality Group to provide temporary food assistance to families in need. Beginning March 6th, The Latino Restaurant Association will be providing culturally sensitive meals to families housed in area hotels three times per day. Families will receive breakfast, lunch and dinner at each hotel. The hotel stays have also been extended until April 7th, for additional time for families to transition to permanent housing.

BronxWorks has been engaged to coordinate long-term case management that will be available to all residents and households. BronxWorks has served the Bronx community since 1972 and is equipped to provide or connect residents to a full range of services and support.

CVR New York is the local entity charged with assisting families seeking relocation housing services. They are assisting all households, regardless of their status or if they are a non-voucher holder. CVR’s team of associates are experienced with household certification, placement, and relocation services.

I want to once again thank our first responders, essential workers, community partners and elected officials for their commitment and partnerships. We will continue to work to ensure all of the impacted families are receiving resources and transparency throughout this process.”
