I am currently receiving Section 8 Housing Assistance with my rent. Unfortunately, they are terminating my assistance as of March 1, 2012 because they claim my son did not submit all of his bank statments during our yearly re-evaluation. I just want everyone to know who gets this type of assistance - if you don't submit all the information they request this is grounds for immediate termination. If they terminate your assistance - it's forever. You can't get it again. I was on a waiting list for 6 years. I live near Glendale,CA. Problem is they do a background check for bank accounts - they found 2 other bank accounts in my son's name. These were closed accounts. He brought proof from the bank that these accounts were previously closed. Apparently this was not good enough for the Housing Authority. I'm goling to challenge their decision. I may not win but I'm going to fight to the end. I may not win but I feel their not being fair. We submitted everything they requested. I'd like to know if this has happened to anyone else and if so, can you leave me a message or post your experience with them? Another problem I now have is my rent is going from $300 a month to $1125 a month! That's pretty much my whole social security check! I had to be hospitalized last week because of the stress of all this. I collapsed. I can't come up with this kind of money. This would take up my whole check and I wouldn't be able to pay utilities or buy food or medications. I now have to find another place to live and also don't have the money required for first, security and moving expenses --- that's going to be tough. I can't pay more than $600 a month max. for rent. If anyone knows where I can find cheap rentals in or near Montrose, CA or Glendale,CA please let me know. Thanks.
Dear Strongmom Have you tried food banks in your area or Catholic Charities or the Salvation Army or United Way? I also just came across a website called www.Ineedfinancialhelp.com. I haven't tried it but maybe you could check it out. I've been where you are and know what you're going through. I had no income for 3 months, my mother had just passed away and I was a total zombie. I was completely traumatized. If it wasn't for my son and his girlfriend I would've been homeless and starving. Im on SSDI and they stopped my claim for 3 months. I didn't know whatI was going to do. I hadto apply for welfare and received $186 a month!!! Who could live on that???!!!!!!! I don't want to bore you with my story, I just wanted you to know I know how u feel and just wanted to make some suggestions so maybe if there is a food bank maybe through a local church in your area or try contacting your local Salvation Army. They provide assistance with food and utility bills I believe. I know you need help right away so look them up on Google and give them a call. I'll pray for you. Please let us all know if you were able to get help. God Bless.
