Emergency Housing Vouchers

I’m really confused! I’m a 54 year old disabled woman living on a disability check that is in Desperate need of housing. I contacted my Local PHA who told me that he could not help me because there was a waiting list that hasn’t been opened since 2016!! No help at all!! I did further research and discover these “Emergency Housing Vouchers”!! Exactly what I need and I will qualify for!! I call the PHA back and when I am FINALLY able to speak to him again he tells me he not only doesn’t have them. He never has ever had them and won’t be getting them!! This was the total extent of help I received from my PHA!! I don’t understand why my Parish hasn’t been able to help ANYONE SINCE 2016!!! Why would we not receive ANY VOUCHERS AT ALL!??? I just don’t understand this at all??? So people like me and others are just not entitled or able to receive any help whatsoever from HUD?? Please somebody explain to me what is going on and where we are supposed to go when we are in need like the rest of the world?? PLEASE!!!

I’m really confused as to the role that you actually play in providing what you call housing assistance. Since I have been in search of affordable housing, section 8, etc. I have had no luck actually finding the help I need. I get emails after email asking the same questions and providing the same information only to do it all over again the next time. People are reaching out in desperation and the only thing I see you helping with is posting people’s business and their vulnerability. What have you actually done what you say your about? How many people have actually been place into a place they can afford and call home? Affordable Housing, Affordable Housing Hub are a waist of time and giving hope that you can actually do something. So far you haven’t done anything im still in search of a place I can afford and irritated as hell to your false promises. People are in desperate need of affordable housing do what you say you are about and help us not just put our business out there. Please

I’m looking for low income disability housing. I recently suffered a stroke and while the doctors were working me over discovered I have a brain aneurysm. I’m 58 yrs old and have predecesed my mom by 8 yrs.
When I was released into my husbands care he lost his job for giving me great care. Now, the only income is my social security disability.
Ive lived in my apartment for over 22 yrs. June 1,2023 new owners purchased the apartment building we’ve lived in so long. We’ll June 23rd they started eviction on us. We’ve been in and out of court due to corporate greed. The new owners want our unit to rehab and charge 1900$ rent from what I’ve paid last 22 yrs of 750$ a month. My income monthly won’t cover the rent and we’re gonna be homeless December 31,2023. I have a month and a half to move with now an eviction on our record. I paid 22 yrs without an eviction. So, I filed with my local PHA. I was number 19 on senior disability housing. I was pushed to number 30 because veterans go first. This can be years before disability housing can accommodate me. My son, my husband and myself will be homeless!! UniteCT will help with first months rent and 1 month security, but no one takes it when you apply. I have to pay 50$-100$ each application fee for every apartment application.
My son has to move somewhere else and my husband and I are going to have to go into a shelter and put everything I’ve earned last 22 yrs in storage. No one is willing to help. Including my local PHA!!! They don’t care, nobody cares. Im sick with a brain aneurysm and I won’t have surgery bc I have nowhere to recover. My meals are delivered and I have a in home nurse. My Medicare insurance helps but my state of Connecticut has taken my foodstamps away from me !!! How
Are we supposed to get ahead in life??? Im going to be homeless!! I have no family left. Im an only child. My husband barely has family left.
What should we do? I’ve applied
To every section 8 housing authority throughout my state of Connecticut and I’ve applied outside the state. Does anyone know who I can contact for help?
NOBODY CARES TODAY AND ITS A SHAME!! I have fought enough in court against these slumlord new owner of this building that worries about the almighty dollar than a tenant that’s lived here and took care of this building as a superintendent as well. Im so
Upset that my family will be displaced and homeless!!

Hello this is my first time ever on this housing heroes site, your comment was the first that I read which 2as in June I think? I sure
hope you have found housing since then. It is now in December 7, I live in Mississippi I’m taking it you may possibly live in Louisiana you mentioned a Parrish.? I’m 58 disabled For the last couple months, been bouncing from my sisters to a friends house, which will both be ending soon! I do have my 2014 Hyundai accent and it is my safety comfort zone/home. I’m actually loving this cooler weather right now but anyways.!!! Both Louisiana & Mississippi just like all the States received very large, large housing grants these grants was “intended” to help the homeless, displaced, maintenance on government/low income housing, H.U.D/Section 8 etc. not long after Biden took office——-key word::: “INTENDED”
The beginning of 2020 I drove to GulfPort to the HUD office, sat in the parking lot, filled out all the paperwork on the list of apartments to choose from I chose ALL but 3-4 locations, some were damn near up to the Delta Arkansas line. I live near the coast, away from only family I have , !! October 2022, I received a letter from HUD with an address\location… same county next, town over, was one of the 3-4 areas I did not choose & worst locations possible!!! I truly believe in my heart The only reason I got the letter was because three or four months prior to that I called the office was asking for an update I never got it couldn’t talk to nobody I left messages left messages. Finally I talk to somebody that was so rude, very rude and ugly speaking I was informed the reason why none of my messages got answered or nobody replied, because we/Applicants were INFORMED Not to call the office whatsoever for updates, that they would contact me! I was never informed that after that, I did make some additional phone calls to additional places which really didn’t give me no far it got me a letter, location to the hood!!! It’s been a struggle. This is real. This is reality.
