The Crisis of Crisis
On November 3, a post appeared on the blog Joe. My. God. with the subject line “Ali Forney Drop-In Center Destroyed By Hurricane Sandy.” The post included a letter from AFC executive director Carl Siciliano explaining that their drop-in center at 527 West 22nd Street—which provides homeless LGBT youth with essential services like food and mental health care—was in Flood Evacuation Zone A and had seen extensive water damage. It ended with a plea for money.
