By Jeffrey Williams-Maisonet

REDFERN- Rockaway Primetime Reporting has received info earlier that Redfern Community Center hosted by the Police Athletic League (PAL) has been shut down until further notice.

In an open letter to the community by Marcel Braithwaite Director of Community Engagement.

The letter states, “Effective immediately, the Police Athletic League must immediately suspend programming at the Redfern Cornerstone until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause your family and we are working with the Department of Youth Community Development (DYCD) to restore programming at Redfern under the auspices of another provider.

“It has been our honor to serve the youth and families of the Redfern Community for the past 7 years. It is our hope that another provider will be quickly identified and resume normal program operations at Redfern Cornerstone Community Center.
