Mental illness sufferer needs housing

Post by CBC » Tue Aug 20, 2013 12:27 pm

I have been a tenant in a support-housing program for 14 years and I need help paying an overdue 325 rent bill. I am mentally ill and do not want this to continue. I would prefer to use an organization other than St. Vincent's Depaul, because the man who runs it is old and mean. I really actually attend a church located in Rockville Center called St.Peter's. Please help me. I suffered a massive broken arm last year, and lost my roommate of 14 years who is now in a community residence, and then came along Hurricane Sandy, plus flak from my housing agency, although I have NEVER been more than 1 month behind on my rent. PLEASE HELP ME!

I NEED ASSISTANCE WITH MY RENT AND OR WATER. I HAVE BEEN RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH COPD, BARRITS, ASTHMA AND JUST HAD SURGERY. I LOST MY INSURANCE COVERAGE DUE THE COMPANY I WORKED FOR CLOSED AND NO LONGER HAVE INCOME. JUST MY HUSBAND INCOME AND OUR DAUGHTER IS A FULL TIME STUDENT WITH A MENTAL ILLNESS. MY SCRIPTS ARE OVER 500 MONTH. I need help getting by for the next 2 months so I can get health to go back to work. Medicaid says my husband income is to high but our month income is 2200 and our bills our 2214 month that doesn't include food, gas, medicine, dog bills. Please see if you can help. My water 2 months past due, $210.00 and Rent was due on September 1. $875 plus a 50 late fee. Any you can assist with would really help. I live in St Petersburg Florida.

We are in need of $670 for January rent. Our car gave out on us and we needed one fast so we wouldn't lose our jobs. We now have a car and between the 2 of us we have 3 full time jobs and admitting that we need help is the hardest thing for both of us to do. We also have a daughter with a mental illness. If we can get help with the rent we would both be able to sleep at night knowing someone cared enough to help us. Thank you

There are federal programs that offer housing for mental illness, disabled, and special needs housing. One of the main HUD programs is Section 811. This means a client will gain a rent subsidized home or apartments, but note that there is often a waiting list in place. Find more information on section 811 housing.
