I am an older single parent of an 18 yr old daughter. She will probably be living on her own within the next year but for now I need an affordable

Asked by Vramostoday, Oakland, CA Wed Oct 17, 2012

place we can share. My income is around 16k annually and when I find places I feel I can afford we are disqualified by my low income. I haven't tried to get housing assistance like section 8 etc. because the wait lists are either closed or infinitely long. Please some direction?! We are staying with my adult daughter but need our own place soon. I think I can reasonably afford $700. Is it at all possible in the Oakland area? Help!!
