The Council firmly believes that it is no longer enough just to "manage" homelessness, rather, the need is to solve the issues of homelessness.
The City, in partnership with Father Bills MainSpring (FBMS) and NeighborWorks Southern Mass, currently has two residences online, which are used as permanent supportive housing models. The first residence is known as the "Claremont House" and provides permanent housing and supportive services for twelve (12) formerly chronically homeless women. The second residence is known as "Father McCarthy's House" and provides permanent housing and supportive services for nineteen (19) formerly chronically homeless men. FBMS and NeighborWorks also manage several scattered-site units for formally chronically homeless individuals. All of these units are assisted with HOME and/ or McKinney Program Funds. The chronically homeless population in the Quincy/Weymouth Continuum of Care has dropped from 142 individuals to 48 individuals since the implementation of the City of Quincy 10-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness.
