She can not walk without them and could qualify for disability. She chooses not to give up because of a physical problem. I met a man that was completly disabled. He was an Engineer that still made money. He had rigged a set up at his home office that allowed him to still work. I think we the people are a resilient bunch and if given the chance we will succeed at life. For those of us that are succeeding we see the posibility that all others can also succeed in life. I remember when I was deep into the educational process of earning my BS and then my MBA. Those that had done it knew I would be successfull. Interestingly many that had little education past the high school level were a drag on my time. "You can't work full time with a wife and kids and go to school." It turns out that you can, and I did it. Like those that have accomplished things of value they have the beliefe system that most people could do what they did. To say that I or others are jealous because we can't get into a giveaway program is preposterous. Most of us have the beliefe that you can make it in life without a handout. We have a beliefe system that we don't need the giveaway system. I am just not that bright of person and if I can accomplish what I have accomplished in life than everyone else can as well. Ask the achievers that live in your area if others can do what they do and you will get the answer that yes you can do it and you can do it without help from the government.
I am a current film student looking to visit the LA area and it's surrounding inland neighborhoods this summer in hopes of relocating. I started college later in life, so with that I have 6 years experience as a waitress/banquet server, and 5 years experience as a CDL BPS bus driver.

I don't mind having to work two jobs and going to classes on wknds., what my main concern is, reading these posts and doing google research on the LA areas, there doesn't seem to be ANY jobs available, let alone feasible apartment rentals. So, how does a single person go about being able to afford that type of rent on low income and WHO THE HELL is willing to pay at least $1495 for JUST A STUDIO?

I'm really wanting to know answers from ppl who've lived there most of their lives on which rental agencies do you go to (THAT MAY NOT BE LISTED ONLINE) that'll help one in finding an apartment for under $800 per month (my car payments I'm stuck with is what's killing my pay)?

Default How do people even pay the 30%?

Section 8 people are required to pay 30% of their income on rent. How can SSI disabled people pay more than $430 when their total income is only $835 per mo. Are any of the Los Angeles Housing Authorities willing to forego the 30%? Are there other programs that might help? Section 8 does not allow anyone to rent a room to anyone else, so just where is that 30% supposed to come from? Which is better in terms of a housing authority and available, affordable, section 8 rentals: Pomona, Burbank, Redondo Beach or Santa Monica. The rents are outrageous. They are double of what one pays in Northern California.

some housing authorities in California want caregivers to sleep in the living room of disabled seniors which puts a tiny household into chaos. Some housing authorities in the Los Angeles area want to put transferring people through the whole process again which causes huges delays. I get the feeling that the section 8 people do everything in their power to deny two bedrooms for disabled people needing caregivers.

I wouldn't be calling anyone ignorant after trying to read your post.

I can't believe the number of spelling and grammatical errors.

Too many to go through.

But it is "They're Jealous", not "Their Jealous".

And people wonder why good jobs are going out of the country.

I really hope your post is a joke.

To think of living at the beach is really an enticing idea. But the truth is that the santa monica area is a tough place to live. it is a conflict between the very rich and celebrated persons to the overload of bums. santa monica real estate is very very high at the same time it has many many programs for the homeless. so at the beach you see psychotic filthy bums side by side with healthy looking tanned upper class. it is a huge conflict. right next to santa monica is venice. venice is a strongly gang held territory in l.a. dangerous, but again, has a beach life to it. if i had a child and wanted to live in california i'd go further up north. monterey, san francisco, santa rosa. l.a. is no place to bring a child.
