Social Security Disability -
Michigan Subsidized housing options with poor credit
(Clinton Township, MI, USA)
I am 61, live in Michigan, and I am collecting Social Security Disability for COPD/Emphysema/Chronic Bronchitis.
I have been trying to find subsidized housing/apartments here in Michigan, but most of them do a credit check. My credit died years ago, and hard as I try I can't seem to get it right. So, for those of us with poor credit, are we destined to live in a box on the beach?
I only get $806.00 a month to live on, and it just does not stretch far enough to cover rent, and all of the utilities. I have no kids to live with, and no friends that are not married.
Any suggestions? I have been online for days looking every place I could think of.
Any ideas or help would be appreciated....wanting to be happy in my senior years!
Wendy: Of course...
This is my own story on a low income apartment (in Mt. Clemens) that my dad lived in. He lived at Park Place Towers... we loved that place! -- Read the Apartment link too. Just so you know this really WILL help you!
Check out: Macomb County Senior Citizens
as this page lists all the low income housing for seniors in the County.
If you'd prefer, call them and they will help you find housing.
Hope you find a new home soon!
