The Department Of Homeless Services is under investigation after city officials discovered that homeless families were being housed in the same trashy motels that allow prostitution and illegal drug transactions.
The Department of Investigations Commissioner Mark Peters said homeless families were placed in motels without any evaluation of criminal activities.
The DOI report shows that at least one young homeless woman was propositioned to work as a hooker.
A Department of Social Services spokesperson said they will upgrade their approval criteria and take immediate action to relocate the families to more suitable living quarters.
