RENOVATE, CLEAN ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILDREN

      JaniSE Rambert

I am writing this letter regarding my experience and the status of the Community Center, Ravenswood Community Center Sponsor: DYCD/Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement. I have been volunteering my time since October 17, 2011 for the health and wellness of the community by presenting Zumba classes.
On June 1, 2013, I enter the community center at 10:15am and found a series of many issues that cannot be dismissed:
• Water bugs running around
• A Rodent (small mouse) was stuck on a glue trap
• Water damage from a leak, which has now, causing some mold and other noticeable issues.
* Urine dripping down from the walls because of the pipes.
What makes this situation different is that it is personal. I went to the trash can to throw out something and a mouse jumped out of the trash pail. The mouse almost landed on my five year old son’s face. I thought hard about this actually happening to someone’s child. In addition, the respiratory issues that people may have coming to this community center. I have gone to many other Housing Facility Centers, and this is one of the worse centers I have seen, attended and volunteered. I have lived in this community since 1988 and the center has not been renovated.
It is unfortunate, that it takes a letter from a concern parent, neighbor, and a volunteer to point out serious issues which can later cause many different problems to the children who attend this program full-time during the summer and afterschool program. This is a cry for help and a concern that I am asking for someone to provide a better quality of health and life for the people, children, and volunteers at my local community center.
Sincerely,
Janise Rambert

      This is important because this problem is throughout the other buildings in Ravenswood
