Well, I've been searching for housing that I could afford and fit 4 kids into. I didn't seriously look into low income housing, because they all said they had long waiting lists, or the ones that didn't were creepy. I found out that one place has a seriously shortened waiting list, and they have 3 and 4 bedroom townhouse style apartments! And grass! And a playground! We went there to apply, and the kids were having so much fun playing with all the kids that live there, they begged to move there. The woman in the office told me I could rent a 4 bedroom apartment for $340 a month. Hello! I'm so relieved!

Wow! Congratulations! Where do you live? I wish I was able to find something like that when I needed it. The list here was years long!
