Highbridge homeless shelter residents asked to move

A homeless shelter in Highbridge has asked its residents to move to other shelters by the end of the month.

The Stadium Family Center is turning into a residence for single adults only because there is a greater need, according to Community Board 4. Families currently in the shelter say they are upset they found out Monday and have to leave by the end of the month.

Residents will be placed in another shelter unless they find their own housing first.
