Hi I have already been through the initial nycha process and interview. On the last moment of my interview the lady informed me that it takes up to 3 weeks to 3 months to get back a response. i recieved the outreach program for the bronx and they had 4 pre selected developments to pick and i picked mitchel houses. i also had to fill out a document stating why i am behind on my rent. so since the interview 4/10/2012 i have not heard from them. how long does the outreach program usually take. and what am i waiting to recieve from them now. also does anyone know if mitchel houses in the bronx has a long waiting list. thank you

I think your best bet is to move down south where you can get more bang for your buck. If you're on Section 8, did you know that you can use the section 8 voucher in all 50 states? Something to look into. A lot of poor people in NY are realizing by moving out of state, that they are able to provide a better quality of life for themselves and children. Don't have the mindset that you HAVE to stay in NY. Go on craigslist and look elsewhere. You'd be surprised how much cheaper rent is elsewhere.

Mitchel houses is horrible like allow of the other housing pj's in mott haven. The only benefit of that housing development is that its right next to the subway one stop from Manhattan so that those poor residents have to work for their wealthy masters. Mitchell does has some betances developments which at onetime was not as bad but are quickly going down the toilet due to other poor hoodratz moving in from Brooklyn, Harlem and the heights into betances developments.

Holy run-on sentence batman. My face started turning blue trying to read it in one breath. Lol

Very indicative of your education level though. I suggest you go back to school and brush up on your english so you can be more presentable and marketable to an employer. You're probably living in a shelter because you have poor interviewing skills.

Things have to be pretty dire for someone to choose to live in the Mitchell Houses, and the fact that she is currently behind on rent tells me her options are limited. If I had a section 8 voucher I would definitely consider transfering to another state and at least trying to live somewhere better and start over. The worst that happens is that you come back and go right back into the Mitchell Houses...trust me...those projects ain't going anywhere anytime soon. They will be here when you get back!

Leaving the state is the best option for her and her child. Could get so much more for your buck down south.

It will be hard even outside the city, but if you are careful about where you go then you'll come out ahead for both you and your child. If you live in the Bronx and send your kid to public school there -- then you are basically sentencing your him or her to the same hardships you have faced and perhaps even worse. Most of the troubled public schools in NYC *at best* set up the students to be low skilled, low paid workers -- such as security guards, janitors, and food service workers.
