"I was on section 8. A new owner bought the old owner out. So they said ‘Anybody on Section 8, you got 60 days to get out.’ So I’ve been gone since July 1st. I’m like ‘Why am I being punished for something I didn’t do?’ 60 day notice, after living there for nine and a half years on Section 8. Well, I guess things happen for a reason. I don’t know. I might find a better place. And the same bedroom that Section 8 was helping me out on, I was paying $650. I paid half, they paid half. The same one bedroom now is $1100. The same bedroom! Ain’t no bigger than a match box. It’s not Section 8 housing anymore."
It’s really crazy. I mean I never expected something like that to happen, and especially after nine and a half years on Section 8. It’s scary right now for me because I have health issues and can’t work anymore. I’ve been disabled since 2009. You know, Community Care Fellowship is a really good thing for homeless people. I get to take hot showers here. I do my laundry. I just came in today to get warm *laughs*. But the best part is the community. The people."
