Senior section housing solutions

Post by MrWilliams » Mon Nov 17, 2014 8:41 pm

I am writing concerning getting the section 202 for my Mother. My Father, who just died on August 29th and was buried on Saturday September 8, 2014, was a veteran. He did 21 years in the air force and four in the army. He died of cancer to his lungs and his kidneys and bone cancer. They were all stage four cancers.
He had signed up for the section 8 program and I guess he is still on the waiting list, but my Mother cannot afford to pay for the apartment they were living in and we do not know what she is going to do. She really needs housing help. I was told veterans had first preference. We have tried everything to get housing for her. What can we do this is an emergency? We have all of the information on his death and his military service.

Not sure what County/State you are in you need to contact the local housing authority for answers. Sadly vets may be a small priority but she is not the vet, some places seniors do have priority but there are no guarantees. Most section 8 is limited and 2-3 year waiting lists. You need to figure out some alternative places for her to go or let her move in with you? Also check to see if there are any senior apartments that are income based.

Does your agency have any contacts in Contra Costa County, California, or Alameda County for housing. All we have left is our personal and housing assets.
We are a senior Citizen couple, disabled and both of us are fighting for our lives as I’m in the 4th stages of Prostate cancer. I’ve been temporarily cut off from my oncology weekly treatments, because I’m $3,700 behind in my co-payments.
In December 2013, we not only lost our home. Everything we’ve worked so hard for the past 32 years is basically lost.
We are now sleeping in the our Car, and basically on the verge of committing suicide, as we can’t find a family unit that will take senior citizens, and we both can not get In-home Services without a permanent address.
We were on a Senior Citizen’s housing list, however when we were called for an available studio unit, we were not only turned down, but taken off the waiting list, because of the negative credit report, and foreclosures. We stayed in a shelter, until we left because they took everything we had personally and dared us to say anything to the staff. I’ve been hit and threatened.
We have called all types of shelters even over night, but they are always full. I’ve always believed God would find favor for us with someone in the power and authority of the holy sprit, as I’ve taught over 40 years that the righteous are never forsaken by God.
Every shelter we call is full and have waiting list, and basically no family shelters have space for senior disabled husband and wife.
Do you have any, any possible contacts in our area (Pittsburg, California). We are now penniless until our next social security check in July, 2015. Unless someone provides us with favor, we are going to perish. I don’t understand why we are so cursed after giving all of our live to helping others.
Thank you,

Cara

Hi. I'm trying to get help paying my rent housing bills. I'm on disability and a senior. On the first of May SSI is taking 366 dollars out of my check for medical care part B. I only get 1047 A month. This will leave me with 681. But my rent is 682.50. Plus I can't pay any bills which is around 210. I don't know what I'm going to do!
The thing is Medi Cal is providing me so I can get part B and according to them I'm still receiving benefits but SSI says I'm not. Until this is straightened out I don't want to be homeless, so I need some type of senior housing program. If there is any way of getting help I would much appreciate it. Thank you.

I am asking for a friend who has been living on the street in Downtown Houston for over a year. She is 62 years old so she is considered a senior. She informed me that she is currently applying for her social security benefits, but that they only come to about $200 per month. What type of housing can she apply for in the state of Texas? She also has a dog and there are not shelters in Houston that accept dogs.

I really hope you can refer me to someone...I'm trying to find a comfortable, safe place for my 84 year old mom in a senior section HUD housing program. She currently lives in magnolia, but she wants to be closer to me.
She has 2 small, housebroken dogs. She is active & has her own transportation. She is on social security & a very limited budget. My mom would be an excellent tenant. I wish she could get a small mobile home to move on my property, but neither of us can afford that. She stayed in a small camper here, but it was too cold in the winter & I needed to make too many repairs.
She didn't want to take my youngest daughter's bedroom, so had to move back to magnolia...it has been very traumatic. I have looked everywhere! Everything is so high priced!!! Thank you so much for any advice.

The HUD voucher program in Pennsylvania can be a solution for you. Seniors, or those recovering from a disaster (say floods) may get priority. Find the details on those section 8 vouchers in Pennsylvania on our main site.
