Well assuming this post is legit then I would suggest looking in Millvale. You can for sure find an apartment for $600 and there is public transportation.

What sort of help are you asking for? If you look on craigslist there are tons of 2 bedroom apartments for $600 and under. I'm sure some of those landlords will be willing to accept someone on SSI. Even if you lower your budget to $500 there are still some 2 bedrooms, and you can expand your options a lot by lowering to a 1 bedroom. So....what exactly are you asking for?

I went on to craigslist myself to pick out a few promising listings when I saw this. Obviously be wary, but it would be a great fit if it's legit.

EDIT: Just had a quick search on craiglist and there are no shortage of 2 bedroom places for $600 or less...what has been the trouble in renting one of these? There must be some factor I'm missing.
the parts that are missing sir are that rite now the 814. a month that i get from ssi are the only income until my fiance gains employment once out there. since i live in berwick i cant get out there to phycially look or tour apartments, it makes it hard. i just want to get my step son and fiance out of a extremely bad situation and i am willing to do what needs to be done to do that.we both have been threatened physical harm and he threatened to kidnap his son. hes in jail and i want to not be homeless and get far away from this area also. i have a responsibility as the head of the house and as far as i am concerned and JAYSIN is also be and do what a father and soon to be husband has to do to keep my family safe. a can check and see that i am not scaming and google map the address and you'll understand why i cant just get out to pitt to look. so with that sir any help you can give me, me and my family would be very thankful for. thank you and god bless sir

So have you tried contacting any landlords to rent a place site unseen (other than pictures)? Maybe a month to month lease considering the circumstances? What about the craiglist ad I just posted offering free housing for someone specifically in your sort of situation?

Since there have been threats, have you involved the police or social services? Have they been able to offer any help?
