Three new drop-in centres to be built shortly

The Government is expected to spend in excess of $350 million during the new fiscal year to construct three multi-purpose drop-in centres for indigent persons in the Corporate Area, Portland and St. Catherine.

Local Government Minister Desmond McKenzie is projecting that by the end of 2020 all fourteen parishes will have drop-in centres.

He says the facilities will be furnished to create a more comfortable environment for the indigent.

The drop-in centres will provide warm meals for homeless persons, a place to shower, provide a change of clothes as well as to rest temporarily.
