Temporary sleeping shelters are coming to the former Shattuck Hospital campus in Jamaica Plain to house individuals experiencing homelessness from the Mass and Cass encampment.

CCA and Eliot Human Services will partner to oversee the site and provide critical services including behavioral health care, long-term housing search support, medication-assisted treatment, security, and on-site clinical, substance use disorder and nursing support.

CCA President and CEO Chris Palmieri said in an email that the organization is well-positioned to assist with the Mass and Cass crisis, having helped the state develop and manage a program early in the pandemic to provide shelter in hotels for over 3,500 COVID-positive unhoused residents.
