Deval Patrick on Welfare & Poverty

Democrat


Housing First strategy: 1,000 families out of shelters

A thousand families moved out of shelters and motels and into permanent housing last year--not by accident but because we chose to move toward a "housing first" strategy, to work to end homelessness for good. This and much more of the progress we have made together is happening because of the choices we have made together, choices inspired by our generational responsibility, our commitment to leave to others a better Commonwealth than we found.

Promote more multi-family housing starts

Working in partnership with local authorities and community interests, we will pre-permit multi-family housing development sites throughout the State, and provide additional support to local public schools to address the impact of having additional school age children in the system.
