Boston offers $6m in housing vouchers
500 homeless families to receive new subsidy
Until last year, Christie French and her two children lived at her’s mother house in Roxbury. It was a good home, a well-lived place filled with favorite things and family pictures, and they were happy there. It even had a big backyard, big enough for a dog. But when French’s mother lost her office job at a construction company, the family couldn’t make the mortgage. French worked at Dunkin’ Donuts, but her paycheck wasn’t nearly enough.
