NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Tents set up for the homeless in a New Haven community garden may not stay for for long.
The tents were put up Thursday at the Rosette Street Community Garden by Amistad Catholic Worker after a homeless overflow shelter shut down, leaving about 100 men out on the streets.
The City of New Haven tells News 8 that it isn’t happy about the tents and says they are not a practical solution.
Amistad Catholic Worker says the tent city proves a valuable point when it comes to finding a place for the homeless to stay.
The Rossette Street Community Garden says it supports the effort to help the homeless, but the garden needs to be used for gardening.
