Hotels as Emergency Shelters

Category : Homeless Shelters

As many residents are aware at this time, the City of Marlborough and our hotels are currently housing more than 50 homeless families from across the state that were placed here by the MA Department of Housing and Community Development.  As we continue to face an epidemic of homeless families, we must be cognizant of the fact that this situation is unacceptable for the families AND for the host communities who unfortunately are burdened with sometimes high schooling and transportation costs.  I continue to work with City of Marlborough officials as well as DHCD to find a remedy to this unfortunate circumstance and to end the practice of using hotels as emergency shelter statewide.  Today, DHCD made my office aware of an unacceptable situation currently taking place at one of the hotels providing housing for these families.  I have been assured that the situation has been rectified and that measures have been taken to ensure that these families and our community at large are safe from this point forward.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
