Beverly Farrington and Rafael Marté
A 25 year old homeless woman, June B., walked into the Yonkers District Office of Westchester County DSS in February of 2016 seeking her much needed public assistance, as she was just evicted after being left alone to fend for herself by her ex-boyfriend. The reason he left the native Michigander, who has no family in NY, was because she became pregnant.This single, abused mother of a now 10 month old boy, still remains homeless with her son…and Commissioner Kevin Maguire is doing nothing about it.The corruption and fraud behind this lies in the Yonkers District Office headed by Director Leonard Townes, who has also remained in the shadows without comment.Ms. Jun is attempting to sue due to negligence of of her matters.Mr. Rafael Marté And Beverly Farrington were caught openly discussing their prejudice towards June and their purposeful withholding of her cash entitlements.After months of refiling (3 times) for a fair hearing request, finally she was seen by a NY state judge during the last days of December 2016.Not only did the judge hear the incriminating voicemail and obviously rule in her favor after being shown the proof of documents, but Farrington and Marté further incriminated themselves by not appearing at the hearing.It has been a year and June is still without a home and her son does not have any place to grow up. Mr. Townes, Mr. Maguire, and the County executive office deputy Mr. Oros all heard of June’s case but still refuse to meet, speak or reply to her over 20 requests for shelter, money for clothes, diapers, furniture, a crib and a home for her baby.The executive branch has failed to comment to numerous inquiries, and not even the human rights commissioner has replied even though the judge ruled Marté and Farrington’s actions illegal and not in accordance with OTDA law and protocol. June’s proof of documentation is simply staggering, and the back rent owed to her for being withheld was never sent by the county, which might have helped this little family through a rough year.June is currently seeking help in her endeavors to win her case, get the money she deserves and more importantly, a place to live. | The Yonkers District Office of Westchester County is corrupt. We want justice.
