Rent assistance for place to live in San Diego

Post by Sylvia Harris »

I am living in unsafe living conditions here in San Diego and need new housing. There is an illegal sewer under the house that I was unaware of when I moved in 4 years ago. The sewer isn't supposed to be under the house, and it is leaking causing structural damage as well as mold. The city has came out and inspected and said the landlord is in violation of the foundation/structure and failed electrical inspection. Also, there was a bathroom built that wasn't permitted.
I have lived here 4 years and paid rent every month on time. He promised me he would never sell the house, but there are people that keep coming by to do "walk throughs" and one admitted he was a buyer and was looking to buy as the San Diego housing market is tight. He told me the house should be condemned and isn't buying it if course. I have 5 kids and I'm a single mom. I feel he is going to try to kick me out as he hasn't renewed my lease since he gave me a 1 year lease 4 years ago.
He always tells me to change the date myself, which I'm not going to do. I need to move into a forever home or need housing assistance but I don't have a down payment and I don't have first, last, security or a deposit. I do work full time. Is there any programs that can help?

Hello Jennifer and the other post. We have many programs listed for rent help in San Diego, both the county and city. You can find them here. https://www.needhelppayingbills.com/htm ... tance.html
There are options such as a Housing Commission, Home Start, and even a place called Townspeople that help the low-income with both emergency rent assistance and long term help.
