Tenants: Women’s shelter needs roof repair

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

Residents of a women's transitional housing facility say they are fed up with living conditions there.

At issue is the building's faulty roof, residents say.

The Department of Homeless Services, which operates the facility, says it is working with a nonprofit housing provider to make improvements.
