I have read so much conflicting information on this forum! I just need a perspective from someone local if possible.

Here is my situation. My husband is being transferred to Hahnville in January and we will be following behind when school lets out. We have 3 daughters ages 8, 14 and 18. We are coming from Metro St. Louis in a rural town of Illinois with about 10k people. Small town with very little crime and traffic and all the necessities but not to far away from access to better shopping and entertainment/art when we are so inclined. I would really like to find someplace similar in LA and so far have been interested in the Ponchatoula area. But I am concerned/confused about the crime in the area and the schools as our current school is one of the best in the country. My oldest will also start college in the fall.

We will be looking for a house to rent also. Preferably 3-4 bedrooms 2+baths with a garage and hopefully a fenced yard as we have 2 small dogs. Our budget is about 12-1500 and I would appreciate any info on the best place to find rental info and where a family friendly area of town to live in would be. We looked closer to Hahnville but are concerned about flooding/hurricanes and housing is a little to high. It is also a little to close to New Orleans.

Any helpful info is greatly apreciated! Thanks so much in advance!
