Signed up for HUD. Through HOPWA
« on: February 13, 2007, 09:17:41 PM »
Got a call this morning and the lady on the other side said she was from HOPWA, "Housing Opportunities for People with Aids". I am now going to be put on a waiting list to get housing. http://www.hud.gov/offices/cpd/aidshousing/programs/index.cfm

This was some much needed good news finally on my part. Just hope it does not take long to be approved.

Good news Jerry...Your own place (sanctuary) that you put the key in the door would be a great blessing...Maybe others can chime in but I seem to recall a man in my support group told the case worker he wouldn't be happy with the first place he was shown and wound up with a much better apartment...I don't know if this would work in all places, the first place could be the best and perhaps the only option.  Good luck Jer and keep us posted.

Yay Jerry! I hope you get one soon. I know here in PA the list is long, it took me awhile to get housing but I hope things move faster for you. I took the first one they offered me and I must say I am happy with it. Just wondering, here my ASO will put you on a rental assistance program that will pay a portion of your rent while you wait on HUD. Does that happen there? I know things are different state by state. Even if you have a roommate they will still pay a portion...Might be something you wanna check into if you're not getting it already. That's just the beginning of good things to come, Jerry.

Got a part time job washing dishes at one of my friends restaurant. It is a good job and at least Im not sitting around here doing nothing. Also the hours are not that bad either at least I can have some extra spending money and they pay me under the table. The housing is still on hold until I get approved.  Well just thought I would update you on some new things happening in my life. Talk with you all later. Peace out. :-*

Good for you Jerry71. Glad to hear things are moving forward! Now, don't get *soft* and give-in to staying with your ex. If he did this nonsense once he'll likely do it again. Someday (soon) I wanta read that you're moving into your own apartment. Hope you get free eats with the dishwashing job.
xxx,
Mike

Hi Jerry. Hope you work with fun/funny people there and if you get to listen to CD's there, hey even better. I've never had a job where I had to stand on my feet for long periods of time. For the sake of foot comfort, try and find out some different things you can do to prevent foot stress.

Best wishes
