NYC’s Child Homelessness At All Time High; Black Children Impacted the Most

homeless

*(Via Huffington Post) – A record number of kids in New York City are homeless and they won’t see any relief until they get access to more affordable housing, a new report concluded.

According to the Coalition for the Homeless, 25,000 children in the Big Apple didn’t have a place to call home last year, and the situation has had a particularly dire effect on African American kids, the group said in a report released on Thursday. However, the group said the city could see “unprecedented” drops in child and family homelessness rates if it creates more reasonably priced housing options — a cost-efficient system that has already proven to work.

Nearly one-third of adults in homeless families in New York City are employed, yet they are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. The issue remains that low-cost housing is on the decline and their paychecks can’t cover market-rate apartments.

Gospel Artist: Kirk Franklin in No Position to Judge Creflo Dollar’s Character

*Hmm, it seems gospel’s Kirk Franklin‘s less than complimentary comments about Pastor Creflo Dollar (read it here) trying to buy a $65 million airplane caught the attention of  gospel artist Johnny Tyrone Stringfield.

Stringfield contacted EUR ’cause basically he has beef with Kirk Franklin. And if he’s telling the truth, his beef sounds justified.

Here’s his story:

“I want to say something about Kirk Franklin coming out against Creflo Dollar. Listen, Kirk is no better than Creflo when it comes to character. We were invited to the ‘Sunday Best’ show by Kirk’s team and we travel 8 hours to get there. Now keep in mind, they called us twice in advance to make sure we were coming. Well, when we got there we were not able to go inside because they had over-booked the taping. So we traveled all that distance for nothing … some even took off work to come. Well, Kirk came out and told us that he was sorry and that was it. He didn’t offer us gas, room, dinner or nothing but he has the nerve to talk about character. Man please, he has got to be kidding me .So let me get in on this conversation about character I will tell Kirk he has no room to throw stones.” #AllLivesMatterBlackLivesMatter #JohnnyTyroneStringfield

Politico Magazine Asks: Is Newark the Next Brooklyn?

woman walking dog in newark1

*(Via Politico Magazine) – Newark is building again. Yes, that Newark—the city in Jersey that burned after the ’67 riots, the one that helped to define “white flight,” that struggles still with almost impenetrable unemployment and homelessness and crime. That city is building.

And here it all is—its past and present and future—pouring through Irene Hall’s floor-to-ceiling windows downtown: the whites and browns of the Old First Presbyterian Church, founded in 1666; haggard red brick facades with windows sealed off by cinderblock; the neon blue lights of Hotel Indigo, which opened last year in a long-vacant, century-old building near the busiest intersection in Brick City.

“The colors are amazing,” Hall declares on this late February morning.

Though the five-year-old Courtyard Marriott, just up the block, doesn’t take Hall’s breath away, it is the first new hotel built in Newark’s downtown in 40 years.

If the story of Newark’s revitalization is all about buildings, Hall, a 60-year-old principal at a charter school here, is living inside one of its newest characters. Her eclectic, fifth-floor apartment is one of the residential units in Teachers Village, a $150 million, mixed-use project financed through a consortium of private and public investments and blessed with mammoth government tax credits. The development lives along five blocks of Halsey Street, just off of the city’s main thoroughfare and was designed to convert into residents some of the 6,000 teachers and administrators who commute to this city of 280,000 each workday.

Angela Carr Patterson’s ‘Fatherless Girls Summit’ Will Help Heal Wounds and Redefine Lives

*COLUMBIA, SC – Global life strategist Angela Carr Patterson is kicking off her first Fatherless Girls Summit on June 13, 2015, at the Courtyard Columbia Downtown at the University of South Carolina in Columbia.

The one-day summit is designed to help girls 12-17 reclaim their worth, redefine who they are, and rewrite a new narrative for their lives beyond being fatherless.

“Our girls are in a crisis,” says Carr Patterson, founder of the Fatherless Daughters Network, a community that serves and supports women and girls with an unattached, emotionally unavailable, or absent father.

She points to dire statistics that plague fatherless girls:  71 percent teen pregnancies, 72 percent lower standard of living, and five times more likely to commit suicide. Fatherless girls also have a higher percentage of being seriously, and often fatally, abused.

“We cannot read statistics like this and turn away,” says Carr Patterson, who grew up without her biological father. Her 2012 novel, I’m Not That Woman…A Fatherless Daughter’s Journey to Being, and upcoming documentary, I’m Not That Woman…A Fatherless Daughter’s Journey to Being, highlight the fatherless daughter journey.

The event will answer questions from a recent fatherless girls survey and provide hands-on interactive activities, workshops, and a theatrical presentation with open panel discussions. A special guest luncheon speaker will focus on helping fatherless girls heal self-worth, self-love, and self-value wounds.

“A girl receives her identity from her father and we must address our misplaced sense of identity to heal our pain,” says Carr Patterson. “Our goal is not to attack fathers, but create a space for women and girls to move their lives forward in love, acceptance, and forgiveness.”
