    May 15, 2021 | Lyndia Downie, president of the Pine Street Inn, which provides emergency shelter and other services to more than 200 people a day at the Shattuck property, noted that the law that transferred the Shattuck site to the state requires it be used for public health purposes. “We have a desperate need in Boston for housing for people at the lowest income level, and this site has the benefit of already serving low-income people, and it is close to both the bus and T at Forest Hills,” she said. “We need every site we can find.”
