I think your husband is going to have to accept reality. Unless you can afford to pay her housing bills, she's not going anywhere. There's a difference between low income and no income.

Any job is better than no job, its time she open up to all job possibilities.

She has experience doing what in high end jewelry? Can she use this experience to get a job?

Not to get personal, but why is your father in Europe and your mother over here? Can he not support her in this country or can she not move back to Europe?

How long has she been in this country? The fact that she is not yet a citizen and has no income makes finding housing that much more difficult. She is aging as well; are you and your husband in a position to raise your children as well as cover her future medical needs?

The woman is 63 which means she might not be getting any job offers.

I have noticed some senior housing on Housing Connect. She should start applying, or you can apply for her.

Why don't you start by calling local government agencies and non-profit organizations?

Start with the Department for the Aging:

She's not gonna get a career job but she can work. My mom in her late 60's got a job working in a store. My aunt is in her 70's and just started working part time at a bank. A friend of the family got a part time job working retail. Someone else I know, works as a pole worker. There are jobs to be had.

Here's a nice place in a nice location:


Arthur B. Brown and William Brown Gardens ... the Foundation opened 132 units of Federally-funded and subsidized housing, at 225 East 93rd Street in Manhattan.


A good link:
Affordable Housing – New York Foundation for Senior Citizens

SHe will get SSI at 65. It is probably around $735/month for an individual.
