Father Bill’s gets $100,000 grant for Quincy housing resource center

QUINCY − The housing resource center planned by Father Bill’s and Mainspring, the nonprofit that runs Quincy’s only homeless shelter, was awarded a $100,000 grant from the South Shore Bank Charitable Foundation.

The Yawkey Housing Resource Center in Quincy will include two new buildings. Phase 1 is a two-story, 15,700-square-foot building with a day center and an emergency homeless shelter. It is expected to be completed in late spring 2023.

Construction continues at the new Father Bill's homeless shelter on Broad Street in Quincy on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2022.

Phase 2, which is expected to be completed by fall 2023, will be a four-story, 20,000-square-foot building with 30 efficiency apartments for people who have experienced homelessness. 

“We are thankful to South Shore Bank for believing in our bold vision to end homelessness,” John Yazwinski, president & CEO of Father Bill’s, said in a statement. “Beyond their generous grant toward the Yawkey Housing Resource Center, South Shore Bank’s leadership and branch employees are supporting our mission on the front lines by volunteering their time to prepare and serve meals in our shelter kitchens. In many ways, South Shore Bank’s commitment to community helps provide hope to our most vulnerable neighbors.”
