Low income housing Posted On: 10/19/2010 11:39:16 AM
I feel like I am being discriminated against because I am a married white female that was unable to have children. When I got married my case worker said that was the stupidest thing I could have ever done.
Here is my story!
I am a married white female with less than 50% custody of my step-children, on disability & my husband making minimum wage with 50% of it being garnished for back child support. We do not have good credit or good rental history, but no criminal history. There is absolutely no housing that will accept us as a family. We are homeless and have been homeless for almost a year. In this past year we have lived with 4 different family members, which is very hard on the children not knowing where we are going to be staying the next time they come for visitation which is every other weekend. I refuse to expose my step-children to a homeless shelter (which I am not even for sure that one would take us with our family situation). We lived in our tent for 4 months in a friends backyard, but now that it is getting colder out that is no longer an option.
