Section 8 waiting list in Virginia

Postby Macaranoi » Thu Feb 20, 2014 5:06 pm

Hi, I live in Prince William county Virginia and I'm a single parent on disability due to a mental illness I have. I was wondering how your program work and how I can be in it because I'm in need if a place the people I am renting for is moving and I have to find somewhere to live. I've been on the section 8 waiting list since 2011 and I've been contacting them to see when I would be able to use it and they say there's nothing they can do that I have to wait, and the main reason I had applied.
In The beginning I was homeless was because of this reason. Until I found a place to rent And now I'm in need of a place. They did notify me in advance prior to now that's why I had been notifying the housing authorities for section 8. If you could please contact me with information or anything your program could do I would really appreciate it, thank you.

I need help for me and my family. It's me, my kids father and our 3 daughters ages 7, 2, and 1. We live with my kids grandmother who has threaten and actually kicked us out in the past numerous of times and who is reverting back to her old ways.
Now I'm working I'm a Certified Home Health Aide in Virginia Beach who only gets paid about $300 a check and that's sometimes. My kids father worked for the county public works but got laid off. W were planning to move because he was getting paid good money but it was hard to because his mother wouldn't let us save but had to pay her with most of our money.
When he got laid off he went an applied for unemployment which they gave him. He used it all and can't get a extension. He couldn't get a job because he staying home watching the little ones while I work so I won't lose my license. Welfare won't help us with childcare nor housing because we don't get general assistance and he is not working.
I've applied for section 8 and low income apartments in Virginia but the waiting lists be so long. I've been on section 8 waiting list for 4 years. I just really need some help. I don't want to wake up one day and she says we have to go and we have no where to go. Thank you for your time.

Yes, section 8 often has a multiple year waiting list, especially in more lower income areas such as Virginia Beach. Has the father started to look for another job yet to bring in some form of income? That will be required in order to get a HUD section 8 voucher, as they want people to work towards self-sufficiency. Also, look into the Virginia general assistance programs in addition to the HUD vouchers. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... ginia.html

The place you want to try is Social Services in Newport. They are located here.

Not only is section 8 run from their, but many other rental and housing resources may be offered too. Especially if you are 63 and a senior.
