I am a disabled guy on social secuiry disabilty income which only pays me $700 a month. I live hand to mouth with hardly enough to eat. I live in a very cold area with a lot of snow and I need to move to another state that is more warm becasue I have seasonal affective disorder and also the cold makes my arthritis worse and it is hard for me to get around in the snow. I cannot afford to move becasue of my limited income are there any reasorces to help disabled people move to a different state that will pay for them to move or help to cover some of the expenses?

Hello tar21 ---
I am not aware of any government programs that move people from state-to-state. Often times, if you have any living relatives or friends, you could ask them for some financial assistance. Or, if you are a member of a religious organization such as a church, perhaps they could help you.
I Googled your request and came up with a possibility. It is worth a try!

However, be careful with your decisions. You need to thoroughly research any possible move, ESPECIALLY the housing situation. Even if you have a portable Section 8 voucher to take with you, there may be no available units for you to move into immediately. If you are halfway through a waiting period in one place, you may have to go back to the end of the line in another place. Or they may not be accepting applications at all. All I can say is look before you leap!

Default I am in a similar situation, altho not disabled

I am elder and live on $960/month.

I can't imagine how you live on less!

I also want to move because I hate snow and ice.

I am sorry- do not know any org that helps with moving expenses.
Perhaps you can find a social worker who might know?

But this might be helpful:
Affordable Housing and Section 8 Waiting Lists Nationwide

If you sign up you get email notification of waiting list openings for subsidized housing everywhere in the country. (even Hawaii!).
Of course this doesn't help you manage your move, but if you can get together the moving expenses, at least you would have some ideas where to move to.

I am on the waiting list for subsidized housing in Albuquerque NM. They do not have brutal winters like NJ.
Do you know where you would like to move to?
Maybe we could ask administrators for a forum devoted to these issues....

best of luck to you.

Hi, I hope your move to Texas went well. I am hoping to move to west Texas from Northern Indiana. Similar situation. The place I live is a mobile home park that has been raising the rent, taking away services that were included in the rent, no longer do they have a lease/rental agreement that they will show in court. I want to move badly but I am disabled and lack a lot of mobility and they know it. I feel like they are costing me money and time and such an increasing rate, they want me to leave like so many others in this place have. The park is degraded from when I moved in. The occupancy is down by 30% even with new desperate people moving in. The park has changed management 8 times and the owners got sick of it and sold the whole property to some slum lord company in Chicago. Every so often I start thinking of just taking my money and whatever will fit in a truck and setting fire to the place so I can leave. I have friends in Texas but my family is spread out all over the country and can't help me anyway. I can do fine on my fair to average SS disability income if I can get away to better weather and less harassment from somebody like from the mobile park management. Maybe it is unrealistic to think that I can move all the way to Mid Northwest Texas all at once? Maybe I should move south of town to a cheaper park with less management stress, first, so I could save up more money to move all the way to Texas? But any move will cost $1500 or more, just 20 to 50 miles. Moving all the way to Texas at once, might only cost $3000, to move 1400 miles. I'm just scrimping and saving and selling stuff so I can move. It would be nice if some flea market place would help inventory and sell virtually all my things for a decent price, at least to reduce the amount of stuff to move to Texas. I really don't want to just empty my home out and sell it to some unlucky person who thinks its a good idea to move here. Its not a good idea to move here unless you have money to burn. I used to have a good job, but they laid us all off and moved the business to Mexico. I was still trying to work there while disabled, but now that point is moot. I'm debt free completely right now. But it seems like everyone and their brothers take this as incentive to try to steal money from me. I would take a live in handyman position somewhere in Texas even with paying some modest rent. I just need to get there. If anybody knows where I can get some help with any part of my plan, I would be really happy to hear from you.
