- 326 Shawmut Ave before rehabilitation.
Spectators in front of the building at 326 Shawmut Ave that would become the Residencia Betances. Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción received funding from the City of Boston to rehabilitate the vacant building into seven staffed SRO units for the chronically mentally ill and four units for low income persons. The project was part of Flynn's "Room for More" campaign to preserve and create 1,000 units of SRO housing. The chart on the steps refers to this campaign.
