Displaced? Homeless? Holyoke says, No Problem!
This reminds me of the response I got from Springfield's chief Housing Code inspector, when I asked him where people displaced by condemnation were supposed to go. "Relocate," was his answer.
Supposedly, the HHA will distribute Section 8 certificates to Lyman terrace tenants, but of course there's never any discussion as to whether suitable housing is actually available.
I had a long post planned but I couldn't do any better than the post already written by Pronoblem at H.U.S.H, which is also where this great photo comes from.. There are links that tell you how to submit a comment to the HHA. MAKE SURE YOU GO THERE AND TAKE ACTION!
Two Lyman Terrace residents will be speaking at our Housing and Homelessness National Day of Action for the Right to Exist on April 2. We just have to start standing up for ourselves!
