Humanitarian crisis at Logan Airport : the Healey-Driscoll Administration plans to open to an additional shelter overflow site in Roxbury

Boston – STATEMENT from Emergency Assistance Director General Scott Rice
“The state is evaluating numerous facilities in Boston and across the state, including the state-owned Melnea Cass Recreation Center, as safety-net sites for families experiencing homelessness, especially those staying at Logan Airport overnight.

We have been in close discussions with Roxbury elected officials, the Roxbury community, and the City of Boston about this potential temporary site, including how to ensure the continuation of recreation programs. Our system is at capacity and there is an urgent need for additional safety-net sites, and we appreciate the collaboration of communities to help us ensure that no family is left out in the cold.” –
