Right now I’m looking for a place. Everything is out of my price range.—Matthew Wade, Security, Dorchester
It doesn’t affect me too bad. I deal with a lot of families and seniors. You see six people in a two-bedroom apartment or people moving out to Lynn or Chelsea.—Heidy Viarruel, Senior Advocate, Dorchester
It’s not affordable. All the housing they’re putting up is not for the people in the community.—Dorice Haskins, Hospital Worker, Roxbury
