Domingo Flores is a New York transplant who settled in Massachusetts after falling hard for a local woman. But the couple’s relationship faltered, and by August, Flores and his son were homeless.
Flores, who was doing per diem work at a local hospital, turned to Community Teamwork Inc. in Lowell for help. There, he found the assistance he needed to get back on his feet. For nearly four months, the state picked up the tab for a hotel room in Chelmsford while Flores honed his interview skills and searched for full-time work.
