QUINCY, Mass. — State officials have opened a shelter and resource center on the campus of Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy for people experiencing homelessness and “newly-arrived families,” Gov. Maura Healey announced Monday.

The “Family Welcome Center” on the private, Christian college campus in Quincy’s Wollaston section is the second site to be opened in Massachusetts since June.
