My nephew was in...

My nephew was in a federally sponsored halfway house. this past Monday the Vice President of Samaritan village came in and told 10 people there that they had 4 hours to pack their belongings and their time was out. he has since been out on the streets. is this legal?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? It matters because laws vary by location.

New york

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far?

He's contacted hra in queens to try to help him find a place, but as of yet nothing,

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Welcome to JA and thank you for your question. I will be the Attorney that will be assisting you. Is the name of the halfway house Samaritan Village? How did your nephew end up in the halfway house? Was this through the courts/probation?

was through the courts/probation order

Samaritan village highbridge in the bronx

The only reason he could be thrown out would be for a violation of the rules. Do you have any information as to why he was asked to leave?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
apparently he was on contract, but had an extension till may.

So there were no issues and he broke no rules?

not that I'm aware of. he said the vp sent 10 of them out the door

Of he did not violate any rules this is not lawful. You want him to contact a local civil rights Attorney. I am concerned that this could impact his probation as the only way that someone can be legally asked to vacate is for violating the rules. I am going to look up Samaritan Village for complaints. In the meantime he would want to seek shelter with family, friends or a shelter. I am glad that the probation officer was notified even though there has been no response your nephew will want to keep a record the contact.

I will provide a link for civil rights Attorneys in the area. Please give me a few minutes.
