Brooklyn N.Y.- Assemblywoman Joan L. Millman is proud to announce that the Doe Fund Inc. will now clean the Carroll Street subway entrance on the corner of Smith Street and 2nd Place.

The open area in front of the subway stop has become a haven for litter. After learning about the problem at the last Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association general meeting, Assemblywoman Millman immediately contacted the Downtown Brooklyn Council and urged them to extend the effective Doe Fund program further south on Smith Street.

“I want to thank the Downtown Brooklyn Council for listening to the community and quickly solving this problem,” said Assemblywoman Joan Millman. “The Doe Fund has made a tremendous difference in the cleanliness of Smith Street, and I think their efforts will go a long way in maintaining the Carroll Street subway stop entrance. We have to stay on top of these issues in order to maintain Smith Street’s reputation as one of the top destinations in Brooklyn,” Millman added.

The Doe Fund Inc. is a non-profit organization that seeks to end the cycle of homelessness though paid work programs.
