Petitioning The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo

Open the Arthur Kill Correctional Facility For Shelter

We could house the people of NY and others who were devastated by hurricane sandy. They need some kind of shelter and warmth. It makes sense since they have heat, dorms, showers and kitchen facilities. The facility was closed to save funds, so it isn't like it needs repairs or staff to run. The people would just use the facility as a home base until they actually have a place to go again.

Why waste available resources?
