It’s pretty amazing to see the power of social media being used the way it has to return the young woman, who ran away, back home to her worried parents. Great News!


I I don’t care about the details I’m just happy that the child is safe there are too many children that come up missing and that are never seen again or when they are found their found dead thank you Jesus that this child is found safe and alive

Looking for Mike and Destiny to take a walk through the neighborhood and take down the “Missing Child” posters.

Or, you know, you could just take down the ones you see. As a concerned citizen.

No details on where or how she was suddenly “found”? Was she really “missing” in the first place?


Her boyfriend was also missing, they came back together, apparently they both run away together. Her boyfriend was saying all over facebook that they both have problems with her father and they only came back because of his family. His family was also sharing the post so it must be true. By the way, a missing person report was also filed against him, the police were looking for both of them.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
