Inadequate Shelter and Public Housing Availability for the Poor and Homeless in Quincy.

Please email your contact info to: quincyilpovertyproject@gmail.com if you would like to help. Just the other day, we tried to assist a family of 8 needing adequate housing. Not one agency in Quincy, we met with could offer immediate help. Even with advocacy, the family may have to wait months. Meanwhile they are living in unsafe, substandard housing.
