I live in Calvary Towers. It is located in Winter Park, just off the I 4 Fairbanks exits. If you know where Calvary Assembly is, you'll be able to pin-point it's location. The building is well run, clean, close to everything, and yes, the rents go according to ones income. I too have a limited income from Social Security and here your Mom will enjoy help with cleaning, bathing, shopping, etc if needed. We also have a bus that can take her to Publix once a week, lynx bus service.

I know that you are concerned about your Mom being close to you. Winter Park is not that far from Longwood and it is a hop, skip and a jump via I 4.

Calvary Towers is located at 1099 Clay Street, Winter Park 32789 and their phone number is 407-645-1099.

Did you have any progress? I am also curious of moving into those areas but want to find a place that accepts 55 and older, I am disabled but mobile meaning I don't need assistant living and also on that note I would like to be in a complex that is section 8 in about any major area that is safe and I can put down roots and not mess around with section 8 volchers that seems to be less popular due to the abuse of them and also the cliental that goes with them any help would be greatly be apprecaited. thanks.

The HUD subsidized stuff tends to be crappy, as you seem to already know. The state-funded affordable housing developments have to meet higher standards and are usually nicer.

Try this: Florida Housing Search - Socialserve.com

That should help shorten your search.

FYI--They've stopped taking names for the waiting lists to apply for section 8 around here, and are saying it will likely be five years before most of the people who have already applied will actually get into a section 8 unit. You can't get into a section 8 complex without a section 8 voucher--those with vouchers will always take priority, and there are thousands with vouchers already waiting for a spot to open.

I live in Chgo IL. under hud. it was a very nice place until recently they started excepting section 8, section 8 is a good thing for people that need it but some people give it a bad name. I need to be relocated to or near Orlando Florida my nephew is in college their. I'm 62 yrs young on social security disability. He will help me out. I would like a decent, spacious, clean, well kept place with a balcony and a view and a nice view. If someone could help me it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I am leaving Montana due to Health reasons for myself and my son. I am looking to see if I can fined a Hud Home for us near Casselberry Fl. My son and I are on disability and we have a lot of Med. expenses. If you could help it would be a blessing. We will be coming into Orlando in April.

I agree some people give a bad name to section 8. I don't want to sound weird but I ha been living in Orlando, FL for about 25 years and let me tell you a lot of people move down here from N.Y with section 8 and its bad, Orlando has become a crappy expensive place to live. If you have money, or 2 jobs then welcome otherwise don't bother. I can't wait to move out of here
