Faces of affordable housing on the Outer Cape – CCT

Faces of affordable housing on the Outer Cape

The names might change, but the stories remain the same for affordable housing in Dennis.

A cross-sampling of the comments in opposition to such housing compares us to Dorchester and Waltham; suggests everyone is “no-income”; and uses terms like “buminfestation” and “drugged out” and “inebriated” to describe residents of affordable housing.

In fact, such housing has included, fully employed individuals from teachers, nurses and even a former town planner for an outer-Cape community. We house young families both married and single parent. We have provided a safe landing space for an abused mother and her children.

Affordable housing serves a tremendous number of people we see and rely upon everyday.
