Meant to put this up earlier in the week.
Here's the working phone number for 14th District Councilman Fernando Cabrera's new office, located at 107 E. Burnside Ave., just off of Morris Avenue and about two blocks west of the Grand Concourse:
(347) 590-2874 (You can also reach them at 2875, 2876, 2877 and 2878)
Cabrera's made it abundantly clear that he wants people calling these numbers, stopping by, hanging out, asking for help and even creating new problems at his district office.
Yesterday, a young area couple was in the office looking for assistance after being denied shelter by the city's Department of Homeless Services (DHS). After contacting DHS, a case worker soon called back and said they would be there in 10 minutes. Maybe 8 minutes later, the case worker showed up. They went over the couple's case and, although they haven't quite worked out all the details, the couple was at least given temporary shelter.
Imagine the possibilities. Give the Councilman a call.
