You more than likely qualify for public or section 8 housing. I don't know of anywhere were a family of five can live on that income without assistance.

We are in Section 8 housing. This is the 5th time we have been in Section 8. And let me tell you, whoever told you this was a safe and quiet place is WRONG! It is sad to be forced to WILLING leave a $12 a month town house or single detached house, due to ghetto neighbors. It's not fair.

I'm confused by the expectation that you would find a quiet, desirable place to live under Section 8 if one stops to think about it a minute.

Are there places that you have a preference for?

Small town in rural Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota. Look for places with lots of Scandinavian names in the phone book. You should be able to find older single-family housing that needs TLC for 50,000 (meaning 300 or so monthly mortgage). You need to increase your income also, part time jobs, etc.

Examples:

108 S Madison St, Hazleton, IA 50641 - realtor.com®

None at all.

So long as it meets our requirements, we will move to the moon, or live in the sewers!

MN is too strict for education.

$50,000 is way too much. And we could not get, let alone afford a mortgage that high or that rate.



I appreciate everyone's replies! But I have done years of research on places to live in America, and we really need something outside-the-box.

Why is it that poor people in America are so scummy, loud, and rude? I mean, are we really the only poor family that has standards? It is just strange. In other countries, poor people still act like humans. Frustrating.

This is something really outside of the box - Fireweed University City, Detroit

It's a community of new-age anarchist squatters (or at least it used to be). I haven't been down to the area, don't know the people, and can't vouch for what it's like. I just remember reading about them several years ago in a local paper. It looks like it's still active in some form, and Michigan is home-schooling friendly.

WHAT? Fireweed Universe-City is a grassroots, not-for-profit movement to transform a devastated, burned-out Detroit city neighborhood into a sustainable, eco-friendly, intentional community that will be the grounds for urban farming, residential and creative space for artists, healers, musicians, and like-minded, forward-thinking, progressive individuals, families, small businesses, and the surrounding community already in place through healthy food and sustainable transportation and housing.

WHO? Fireweed Universe-City stems out of Innate Healing Arts Center and is inspired by and for local artists, musicians, and healers, however, we are open and accepting of all people, regardless of race, gender, religion, etc. Collectively, we agree that we must have respect for each other, and, respect for our planet.
