I have a rent voucher but need deposit

Post by Shauna Mac » Sat May 26, 2012 11:26 am

Greetings!
I am currently in possession of a low income housing voucher recently awarded to me by the Springfield Missouri Housing Authority. I am seeking assistance with the Security Deposit for my future residence, as that is the only hold up right now for my moving in. On April 18, 2012 the Director of the Housing Authority made us aware of the fact that housing by voucher recipients needed to be obtained by June 18, 2012. I would like to know the process for the proper order of paperwork that is to be involved in my particular circumstance for being approved for Security Deposit support. I appreciate your response in this urgent matter and look forward to corresponding with you in the near future. Have a Wonderful Day! :)

I need help with rent. I had to take my savings and move my family sure to domestic violence. I an a single mom and grandmother. I just need 400 dollars more. I am employed, I just need one time help. Please let this fall in the hands if someone who will understand. I have a 4 month old baby girl and I pay $175 a week in daycare and was not approved for WIC so I have to buy formula out of pocket. Her dad has not helped out so I have no money left. My mother helped me out as much as she could. With daycare being taken right out of my check I only bring home $300 every two weeks so I find myself not able to pay my rent. If you guys could help me out so I can get back on my feet. Thank you so very much in advance.

My husband, three daughter sons (aged range from 3 to 7) and I were just served with eviction papers. We currently live in Addison however I had to take off work due to pregnancy and my husband lost his job and am on unemployment. We came to a no credit check apartment due to bad credit and have the worst landlord. The building is filled with bugs. We've had to replace 4 beds and countless clothes/shoes/etc. Because of the landlords lack of maintaining. We now can't find someone to rent to us and do not have enough money to pay a high security for flexibility.

Springfield looks to be in Greene County, and we have information on rent and emergency housing for that section of Missouri. While some places may have vouchers to pay a deposit, you will really need to call around and inquire with each agency. Some of the places to call can be found here. Read more Greene County assistance.

I would like to know if I can get help paying first months rent or security deposit? I've tried going to DSS but they don't want to help me. My mom also tried and they still don't want to help. I'm 8 months pregnant, I'm due next month and if I don't get the first month rent or security, I'll have nowhere to go. Is there anything I can do?

Normally a rent deposit will not help people with a section 8 housing voucher. Especially if you have no cash to contribute and if your income is limited. But while it may be hard to get help, it is not impossible. So we have a few suggestions, and you can find them here. Read more section 8 security deposit assistance programs.
