A record number of families are being put up in motels in Massachusetts. High unemployment and the rising number of home foreclosures is the reason the state is taking this action.

Housing Massachusetts’ homeless is costing tax payers around $2 million per month. It costs an average of $85 per night to have families, including nearly 1000 children, stay in motels.

The Interagency Council on Housing and Homelessness admits that the use of motels for the homeless is not ideal, but is the best that can be done at this time.

Homeless advocates are worried that families are not getting the support of shelters with living rooms, kitchens, and play areas.


I guess the upside is that it stops those unsightly TENT CITIES from popping up all over and making those with jobs aware that there are economic problems. (Yes that's sarcasm)

well I guess that 2 million is not alot to pay for these people that mismanaged their funds and ended up broke. Not alot, that is, when you compare it to the trillions we spent on those other mismanagers of funds known as wall street.
