Hi. I am going for some kind of income restricted unit in a NICE place, wow. I dont have the minimum income but I am homeless and live in Boston.

This almost seems like a Section 8 kind of thing. How does this go?

How does this go? Easy - you get a well-paying job, make a lot of money and then get a nice place. What makes you think you deserve a nice place for free?

i think a case worker/ social worker will have to navigate you thru the process.

Ugh, move somewhere else. Why should you get to live in a nice place for nothing while the rest of us bust our ass to live here.

Jesus these guys are grade a m*ssholes. Im so sorry you had to deal with their rudeness. You'd be hard pressed to find a more unwelcoming and unfriendly response on most forums. It's actuality embarrassing. I'm sure you are working hard to improve your situation and wish you the best of luck with your search. Im sure there are plenty of social services and governmental services to assist you. I apologize that I cannot help.

Count me in as another person who cannot help the OP, but would like to call out those for insulting him. The OP is clearly looking for help and instead you guys put him down. I think it's time for you all to reflect on your own lives. You could have simply NOT answered, but instead you had to kick a man while he's down. Shame on you.

Ever heard of the saying beggers can't be choosers? There is plenty of section 8 housing in this city. Shouldn't be difficult to find.

The Section 8 waiting list in Suffolk County has been 3-5 years since at least 2003. Yea 3-5 years before they look at your case let alone assign you....but yea should be easy...*eye roll*

hi, not sure if my previous comment was considered rude (whatsnext is in my ignore list so i have no idea what she said) but my friend who was homeless as a minor had no idea how to navigate city hall so from what they tell me a case worker from social services placed them in a halfway house then to a permanent subsidized housing situation.

There is always always horrible and inconsiderate comments from the Internet trolls. Always. Every single time. Its some kind of esteem-building thing. Tough guys behind a screen...

However, I am beginning to think my trip up there was a waste of time.

Different question: Should I more closely focus on Dunkin Donuts, or Blaze Pizza, for that 2nd job? I need to be working the 6, possibly 7 days a week.. Not just the 4, occasional 5.

Rooms can be had shared for like $300/350 to $500. As I always thought those lists were frozen..

Starting to realize, that was a private company? And probably a waste of time.

Their LOWEST unit was $1100... and I had to make at least $26,000 a year..

Screw unhelpful people, Ill go out of my way to be a thorn in your side if you're like that. From not letting you cut me off on the road and then have to break off from a road rage if you continue to everything else. What do you think this is.

I sent a friends request to BostonBornMassMade.
