City Houses 1,700 Children Experiencing Housing Instability Through Boston Housing Authority Vouchers

From the City of Boston's press release: 

Mayor Martin J. Walsh today celebrated a significant milestone in the City of Boston’s housing work, as the Boston Housing Authority (BHA) has provided housing choice vouchers since December 2019 to more than 1,000 Boston families experiencing homelessness with school aged children. The 1,000 families represent more than 1,700 children who will now have much needed housing stability, an effort made possible through partnerships with Boston Public Schools (BPS) and the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development. 

“Being able to offer safe and stable housing for families is one of the most important things we can do as a city government, and I am so glad that these students and families all now have a place to call home,” said Mayor Walsh. “Homelessness creates barriers for our students to grow, learn, and succeed, which is why these vouchers are critical to our efforts of ending homelessness in Boston."
