Thanks Feministing for reporting that one of Boston's DV shelters was destroyed by a fire last week. If you've ever encountered a shelter system in any city, you know that there are more people in need of help then there are beds to put them in. Always. This loss must be a devastating one to the Boston community. Think of all of the women living there who have no place to go and all of the women who would have needed that space over the next few weeks who will have to find somewhere else where there often is nowhere else.
"It's a big loss," said Toni Troop, spokeswoman for Jane Doe Inc., an umbrella group of 60 social service providers including the Stone House. "The loss of any single bed, never mind an entire program, in Massachusetts just diminished the availability of emergency shelters. There are already as many people turned away as are served on any given day."
