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!
Hope you find a new home soon!
