I don't see one next to yours either!

My point was STICK TO THE TOPIC.... the girl ask where she could use her voucher not to be lectured on WHY she has one!

I also understand exactly where you're coming from on the negative stereotypes and I myself hate thinking about moving into an entire area of housing that would be filled with section 8 because not everyone uses the opportunity to build on their lives and many abuse it. I couldn't imagine myself and my daughter living in project housing or an unsafe area simply because I have section 8. People should be able to receive assistance and maintain a safe living condition.
You mentioned several times about how responsible that you are. You mention here that people should be able to recieve assistance and maintain a safe living condition. From my point of view responsible people do that. They pay their own way. No one owes anyone anything. You do owe it to yourself to make a better life for yourself. Why should we the people have to pay for you to live in Santa Monica? The problem with our budget is that too many people think that they are entitled to a better life. That is not the case. No one is entitled to a better life. You make your life better on your own. You want to live in Santa Monica? Do the responsible thing and pay your own way.

So one can apply for Section 8 while living in another state? Never new, thought you had to live in the same state to get on the list to receive a voucher.

How long is the wait list?

Do you get financial aid ? Because I'm almost certain my tax dollars pay for that.

You're allowed to port to another city in another state only after you've lived in your current apartment/house in your current state for one year.

I only know this because our apartment was destroyed in Louisiana for Katrina and we were temporarily on the FEMA sec. 8 voucher.

Very interesting. I am going to check this out, since I am looking to move to California to attend beauty school and living on SSD at the moment in another state.

The OP is the full-time student, not me.

This is for school right?...was it FIDM? It can be pricy too. I'm not sure how costs will be covered if someone has an income that lets them qualify for section 8. Seriously. I hope things work out OP becaues really it sounds near impossible, nevermind finding work. Good luck though! Stay offline and work with people who can actually help you
