(Belleville, NJ USA)
I am telling this story for my sister. She is 61 years old, will be 62 in August. She is on disability, she receives $720. a month. She has COPD. She receives income from SSI, & SDI.
Her friend of 41 years passed away a few months ago. She was giving him some money towards the rent. The rent was $1000. a month. She can no longer afford to pay that on her own.
We have tried so many places for affordable housing, and they all lead to a dead end. The waiting list are at least 5 years, & because she is not 62 years yet, they say they cannot put you on the list.
She is so discouraged, we don't know where else to turn. I guess this is more than our two cents. I can't help it when I start to talk about it, I get so emotional. Thank you for listening.

Don't want my sister to be homeless!
