A College in New England Doing Great Things During Covid-19
Imagine being told to stay in your home and you have no home. The homeless are facing a unique situation during this pandemic. According to WCVB.com, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has made the announcement that hundreds of Boston’s homeless will get beds at Suffolk University. Mayor Walsh told WCVB.com. “These additional beds will ease the burden on our shelters as they practice physical distancing. They will provide more safe spaces for homeless individuals to safely self-quarantine.
Suffolk University President Marisa Kelly said in a statement “We stand ready to help in any way. Boston is our home, and the University takes very seriously its responsibility to be a good citizen at a time when we are being called up to pitch in and help.” Suffolk University will be using the Miller hall building located at 10 Somerset Street. The project will include 172 beds and be managed by the Boston Public Health Commission.
