Viktorya, Other/Just Looking in Westland, MI

I need low income housing in or around Westland. Where do I find it?

Asked by Viktorya, Westland, MI Thu Sep 25, 2008

My boyfriend and I just got served eviction papers. I work, but my hourly rate is low and my hours fluctuate. He recently got fired, and is now on employment. Because the state delayed SIX WEEKS in paying him, and my job screwed up for two weeks, we got really far behind on our bills. we tried to work something out with out landlord *give $400 now, try to come up with the $300 later* and instead got served.

I'm sure I don't have long to find a place, and we have absolutely nowhere to go if we don't find a new home. Where can I find low income housing?

Viktorya,

I'm not sure this website will help, but they offer some information. There are links to housing counseling, rental help, homebuying programs, and more.

You may also qualify for assistance under MSHDA which is available under the homebuyers programs link.
