I can absolutely answer your question Louise, but I need to know what county your section 8 application was filed, what county would you prefer to live, are you elegible for "project based" housing assistance while you wait out the waiting period for section 8 or perhaps you never heard of that because you are already good to go for section 8? I need to know the answers to those Questions so I can do a quick check to see if anything differs in your county than the one I can attest to knowing about. Trust me when I tell you that the answer as to HOW you actually find housing on section 8 will surprise you. Also were you approved for a one or 2 bedroom, and will a caregiver need to be factored in to the answer. I will check back for your answers through out the day.
