Georgia mom of two girls (and one on the way) needing to move away from abusive situation. I've visited Oklahoma a few times and I really enjoyed it there.. Moore, to be specific
I have a monthly set income for now and not really bring picky since I'm trying to move as soon as possible. Public housing is even in consideration, but looking for area in Moore, Norman or OKC that's safe since I have family in these areas. I would like suggestions on safe public housing or low income areas to live, please

If you want to be somewhere safe, those areas are not it. Moore is hit by a EF5 tornado once every 5 years, and the rest of OK as well.

As you have family in the areas you are looking at - contact them. They should be able to give you first hand information about their neighborhoods. Public housing/subsidized housing is the same all over which means application, qualification, waiting list.

Oklahoma is broke, so don't expect much help from state government. Oklahoma is really more geared toward helping the already well off become more so. Poor people are left to sink or swim.

Yes, sure seems like it.

If you live in another more expensive state and get any help from the state, don't *assume* you get any here. They chose not to be part of medicade expanstion, for instance. I was dropped over a small raise in disability. I was lucky this happened after the emergency I had. I also lost the twenty dollars worth of food stamps I had.

It seems complicated and I HATE complicated things having to do with money, but I'm actually looking forward in a month to go on medicare, just incase my luck and no big problems doesn't hold.

What is cheaper is housing, especially in smaller towns. My house is worth 15k, and most lists of the worth of houses don't even go that low. But its sturdy, small and what I wanted, and the last months in the apartment in California I knew just how much I hated apartments. I have chosen to trade the house I wish for with a quiet location, for the social stuff I sometimes turned to in socal. I didn't do it often so it wasn't a complete change, but I've found ways to live with the occasional moments I do.

If you do look for a cheaper place to live, and if you have a small amount of money to pay for housing, look up lower cost housing and check costs. The realator sites have some very cheap properties mostly in smaller towns. Use social media and ask about the area. Don't act blind. Just be warned it won't be like what your used to.

Consult someone official about the domestic violence situation as well, and get their advise. They are there for you for a reason.

Just remember that if you want cheaper you CAN find it, but the cost is likely in a different culture you have to get used to, and will both lose and gain from the choice.
