I gave up my housing to help my Mom she now has passed. I love the place I lived in finally I was happy working with the animals at the zoo in Big Bear. I rented a place on section 8. Mom got sick a hours drive away and I gave up everything to be with her. Even though it meant loosing my section 8 housing. I now rent a half of a room and desperately want to go home to the animals and where I was meant to be. It is a 5-7 year wait on the housing list here. And I am only temporally in the place i am in now. Is there any help out there to help us return to our own lives? 21/2 years I sacrificed and would again is necessary. I am on SSI myself and limited income. I tried to save for the move and did up to 1500 but it was needed for her to be taken care of. I am the only one left. Any suggestions? Thank you

I feel for you ...
I live with mom now.. been care taking for little over 2 years.. but has lost my full time job just prior to that.. if mom passes.her income SS will stop.. I wont be able to keep up the house at all.. as is the yard work and maintence is too much for me..been lucky to have a guy who stores his things in my garage.. so he helps in place of rent...but He wont be here in the winter months..
I will be forced to sell the house...by the time I get back to work ( at my age 53 and been out of work its going to be challenging).. I will have no where to go..
No $$ for rent.. and no credit .. I know I shouldn't worry yet.. but.. Id like to have a place for my daughter to come home to.. and she wont...
so scared......... and to old for Sugar Daddy website lol!!

I so admire you for taking care of your parent. I think purpose and responsibility keeps us alive. I have none. My best friend and colleague - Tig the Wonderful CatMan - was a loyal and beautiful guy who died this year - he was 15. He (I think and I hope happily) lived in my Jeep while we did Hurricane Katrina work for a couple of years. I have no place to live. A friend is housing me for an an exorbitant rent considering I do all the housework and cooking and pay him 300/month plus groceries and cell phones plus manage his lab-like dog from h*ll who threatens all the neighbors. I love Molly the Dog from H*ll and she won't mind anyone but me. Neighbors promise to shoot her because she threatens everone and has bitten several ... if all her moves were reported she would already have been put down .. but good neighbors have let it go because this old man I rent from is sort of pitiful and she is all he has. His family mostly avoids him and he will probably die alone. So will I (die alone) - I have MS. I don't want to die here. I would like to die under less stressful circumstances... tho I admit I am not sure how (non)stressful death arrives. I am ready and happiy and am greatful I live within a bridge and and a dock that would provide blissful death. I plan to let the water get alittle warmer.

KiKi10: I wish I knew what to tell you but psteigman gives some good advice so I would go with what she has told you. Best of luck, I don't think I am that far behind you and it is frightening to think about.

Check the Belmont / HUD office near you to see what else is available. Also check with Habitat for Humanity in Big Bear, or go to www.wetakesection8.com and do a search by zipcode.
