If you are looking for housing under Section 8, then your best starting point would be Quincy Community Action. They cover parts of the South Shore and will be able to assist you in getting started. Here is the website for QCAP:
I'd. Suggest talking to all the local housing authorities in the areas you'd like to live. Anytime I have anything available, I always contact them and usually begin to get phone calls and applications right away.
You should contact an agent that specializes in rentals... most agents specialize in sales but any agent that does rentals and covers your area would be a good starting point. Contact them and discuss your parameters and that should give you a good idea if your desired rental is achievable, and the agent's comfort level covering the areas you want to be. Good luck!!
