I definitely understand where you’re coming from. I’m not super desperate for a place but I’m getting there. I have looked outside of the housing connect website, but haven’t had much luck. I am trying to weigh the options but the reason I moved from my last place was because my neighbor was schizophrenic off his meds and played music 24/7 LOUD. It nearly drove me insane. He also consistently flooded the apartment to the point where part of my ceiling fell! He would just say he “forgot” to turn the water off…The management said they couldn’t do anything about it because he got the apartment through social services so they couldn’t just kick him out. They offered me another apartment but it was $600 more than I was paying and I couldn’t afford it. Anyway, needless to say that ordeal left me traumatized. I can’t do unnecessary noise for long periods of time. I submitted my documents anyway and will make a decision based on how that goes.

The supportive housing applicants are not the same as the affordable housing applicants. They do not go through the same review. That’s a completely different program.

It is crazy, I hope that everyone can find good place. I think I have to go to school and get a degree in order to buy a single family house in the United States.
This is my goal. I hope that if you give me 20 years. I can do it. But right now, I will shut up in this website. It is fxxking hard to get a satisfy place in the city. Goodbye. Hope everyone is luck.

No preference that I know of. I was trying to get a 1 bedroom, but I think I only qualified for a studio. I withdrew my application though!

today the 1769 Jerome avenue apartment asked me to submit all the document for the building, I do not know I can get one or not, but I handed in all the documents as well as the bank statement and other files. A stack pile of files to the developer.
