Hello All - my mother has been ill for quite some time, and now during her most recent hospital stay has been told that now she has heart issues that will require medication. Due to this, she has not been able to work and is now waiting on SSI to kick in.
Anyway, can anybody advise if there any low income/SSI Housing that I can look into for her? I tried to google, but I keep getting ads that don't help me.
Currenlty, she lives in Woodbury, NJ which is Gloucester County.

Thanks!

I don't think posting on this site will be of much help to you as it's related to general landlord tenant and renting issues. Try posting in the appropriate state forum.

Oh, you are right. I didn't even notice I posted it in the renting forum.

Is it possible for a mod to move it?

Here you go - just PM the appropriate moderator and request the move:

Or the retirement forum.

There was an active thread there recently on subsidized housing for low income seniors (and disabled).

Most low income housing is funded by HUD and administered through local Public Housing Authorities.

I have had luck getting seniors about to be homeless priority housing... it takes a ton of leg work to document everything.

Normally, in my area... the wait list typically stretches out for years...

All you can do is inquire and remember... just because one city/county Housing has nothing available... doesn't mean another one in the next community is the same... one woman without family was placed... but, it required her to move three counties away... she was thankful to have a place to go and I helped her move.

Another option, at least it is here... is faith based housing for seniors.

Not far from me is a Lutheran Home and they are very good about taking care of elderly with no other means... I have heard the same for Mormons also.

Your local Hospital might be a great source too.

If a senior is indigent... the county will have some suggestions as to available shelters... the policy here is to place those needing assistance with family first... those without any family move to the top of the list.

Thank you all for your input. I should have mentioned, my mother is only 56, so not really eldery. But since she has been sick, it seems like she is.
