Housing Boston, one person at a time

Last Thursday morning, I walked down West Broadway in Southie, into a bustling Labouré Center. Although it was 7:30 a.m., the energy was high — the room filled was with city and state officials, caseworkers, advocates and volunteers who had arrived at 5 a.m. that day. Together, they were working to provide housing to every homeless elder who walked through the door that morning. By 5:30 a.m., the first guests had begun to arrive; by the time it was over, we had housed 45 people in one morning. Please follow and like us:
