CHICAGO—The City of Chicago finds itself embroiled in a national humanitarian crisis, necessitating collective solution to secure environments for new arrivals in search of asylum.
Concerns have emerged regarding the relocation of families presently residing at the High Ridge YMCA in the Rogers Park community.
Mayor Brandon Johnson has reevaluated the timing to facilitate a smoother and more hospitable transition. Emphasizing the city’s overarching objective of providing temporary shelter and relieving the strain on Chicago Police Department district stations, the mayor aims to accommodate over 400 single new arrivals.
“The City has decided to reschedule the relocation of migrant families from High Ridge YMCA to Daley College for Sunday, June 11,” the mayor announced.
To ensure a seamless transition, migrant families moving from High Ridge YMCA to Daley will have access to similar programs offered by the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) at Hurley Elementary. They will also continue to receive the same services currently available at all City shelter locations.
“The Daley College community has been very welcoming to the new arrivals already in residence, and our administration is certain it will provide a warm welcome to these families as well,” said Johnson.
