I AM ON SECTION8 AND HAD TO MOVE BECAUSE OF A FORECLOSURE. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR 6 WEEKS, NOW,PAYING STORAGE,STAYING WITH FAMILY.THERE IS NOTHING I CAN FIND AND I LOOK EVERYDAY. EVEN THE DUMPS ACT LIKE THEY ARE TOO GOOD FOR A SECTION8 PERSON. IF I DON'T FIND A PLACE BY SEPT 1, I WILL BE KICKED OFF AND I DON'T KNOW HOW I WILL MAKE IT AS I HAVE $600.+200 SOCIAL SECURITY TO LIVE ON. AND THAT IS WORKING 2-3 DAYS a week. All I want is a place I can live in and make a home to stay in.
,I think maybe I will start asking for a credit check on the landlords. I also feel very discriminated against by the realtors and landlords when their tone of voice and attitude change when I ask if they take Sec8..
I HAVEN'T ALWAYS BEEN POOR,AND THOSE PEOPLE WHO LOOK DOWN THEIR NOSES AT SECTION8 PEOPLE,SHOULD TAKE A GOOD LOOK AROUND YOURSELVES BECAUSE THINGS BEYOND YOUR CONTROL ,COULD CAUSE YOU TO NEED AND FEEL GRATEFUL THAT THERE IS SECTION8..
