Evicted Fall River Families May Soon Be Out Of Luck
A group of about 15 families from Fall River say they are running out of time. Less than a week after losing their apartments, they are now at risk of being tossed out of their temporary shelter as well.
The families are in the temporary housing without their personal property and other comforts of home, like a kitchen. They are also angry that the reason they were sent packing from their County Street apartment building was due to years of unpaid taxes and health code violations. They were evicted with only a few minutes notice.
The City of Fall River has provided temporary housing for each family for a few days at the Swansea Motor Inn, but the residents are now worried about the funding running out and where they will go next.
