N.B. homeless drop-in centre receives notice its lease is being terminated

A street level intervention drop-in centre that helps the homeless population in New Brunswick will soon have to find a new home. 

CTV Atlantic reports that Moncton's Reconnect Program has been given notice that its lease, which originally was due to expire at the end of 2018, is being terminated early. 

The program’s interim director Lisa Ryan tells CTV Atlantic the program will now face restructuring as it must leave the building by the end of May. 

Ryan says they'll try to partner with other outreach programs and make an effort to go out into the community to help individuals as their efforts to find a new home have been unsuccessful. 

Ryan also says the program has been dealing with issues that are difficult to manage, but she adds that steps have been taken to address any concerns in the community including the installation of security cameras and the monitoring of parking lots.
