Your Questions About Apartments For Low Income Single Mothers

March 17, 2012

David asks…

Where can I get information on rental assistance for low-income apartment renting in Indiana?

My mom’s a single mother with no assistance from my father or anything like that (I’m 16, if that makes a difference) she’s looking for a job in a different county and we’re going to get an apartment there but where can we get information on rental assistance?

Administrator answers:

She will need a job first, but the Housing Authority is the county department that handles this. The waiting list may be 2-5 years, so unless she has younger children then you she is not likely to qualify, as you would be an adult before a voucher became available.

She should contact the states child support department to get your support from your father.

Jenny asks…

Will the rental people for low income housing find out im receiving court ordered child support? ? ? ? ?

-I am looking to move into a new apartment. I’m a single mother with a 4 year old boy. . All of the decent apartments are income restricted. When they include the child support it makes me over by literally $200.00…and they won’t budge on the decision…they always tell me I make too much money. I think the whole thing is ridiculous. There are only a few places that do not have income restrictions…however, they are way out of my price range. I would not be able to afford them each month.

I recently found a very nice complex with nice townhomes. I filled out the application but indicated that I DID NOT receive child support. My work income, rental information, etc. is correct. I am waiting on their decision now as they have sent my information out.

This is not a welfare type of thing. I dnt receive any type of gov’t income because of my salary but it is subsidized housing

Administrator answers:

Not a welfare thing? Honey, who do you think is subsidizing your apartment, the subsidy fairies?

So yeah, that’s welfare fraud, and you will get caught, as these places have access to your tax documents.

Sharon asks…

I need to find decent low income housing in Pasadena, CA? I am also a single mother in need of a roommate.?

I have two small children and have been searching for a roommate who also is a single parent and would gladly like to split or share the responsibility of an apartment in the Pasadena, CA area.

Administrator answers:

I used to live in Pasadena. It’s a very high rent area.

Holly Street Apartments takes Section 8 due to their building funding, but not very favorably.

Try looking in Monrovia or Duarte.

Betty asks…

Will the rental people for low income housing find out im receiving child support? ? ?

-I am looking to move into a new apartment. I’m a single mother with two children, however, I only receive child support for one of them. All of the decent apartments are income restricted. When they include the child support it makes me over by literally $200.00…and they won’t budge on the decision…they always tell me I make too much money. I think the whole thing is ridiculous.

I recently found a very nice complex with nice townhomes. I filled out the application but indicated that I DID NOT receive child support. My work income, rental information, etc. is correct. I am waiting on their decision now as they have sent my information to their compliance office for approval. My question is will they be able to verify that I DO receive child support? How would they know? I know it’s not the best thing to do as far as lying on the application but I’m struggling with two children. I can’t afford the other apartments. And where I am now is income restricted, however, when I moved here I was within the their guidelines and now I’m

Administrator answers:

All welfare housing requires you to receive support for the children. If you tell them you are not they are going to go after the fathers to pay what you are expecting the government to pay.

You will be caught, and welfare fraud is a felony. You will lose those kids while you are in prison.

Robert asks…

How do I report a scammer?

My stepbrother’s mother, who lives in california while we live in Indiana is still filing for a low-income/single mother deduction on her apartment and I would like to know how to get her either reported or caught by the apartment building executives.
Well, because we used to live there, I know that she makes quite the bundle, and not only that, she’s renting out one of the rooms, which is a big no-no. She makes a significant amount and if she keeps this up she will eventually be found out either by family or friends.
Well, because we used to live there, I know that she makes quite the bundle, and not only that, she’s renting out one of the rooms, which is a big no-no. She makes a significant amount and I think that it’s wrong to be asking for low income rent and saying that she has two children that live with her that incidentally live 2500 miles away. Not only did she do this, she used them as a tax write off although she has never actually had them live with her.. EVER!
Thanks for calling me a vicious little snot, however if you knew her you would know exactly what I’m talking about, and honestly if you come on Yahoo! Answers to call people names then dont you think you’re acting a little childish?

Administrator answers:

California is an extremely expensive state to live in. She might very well be eligible for low income housing even if her income looks like a fortune compared to Indiana standards.

Thanks for the thumbs down. Reading your additional comment, I can see you are just a viscious little snot who has it in for someone you barely know.
