Hi everyone, I’m fairly new here however I’ve lingered and observed for a while reading & trying to learn.
I’m here today looking for support of any kind & information… I’m literally drowning & I don’t know what to do!
I want to preface that with saying my son who I live with is diagnosed with schizophrenia & I’m his caregiver.
We live above our landlord, without going into tremendous details, our landlord is impossible. As soon as we moved in he was unbelievably invasive. Ok so we have section 8 housing voucher, which pays 98% of the rent. So he wanted us out, I have been looking since we moved in realizing it wasn’t going to work, but anyhow, he took us to housing court. My son was SECTIONED for 2 months, he is Head of household as well, when we applied they said best because he’s be eligible for emergency housing. the court went through a hearing and mediation without my son being able to attend. So I said yes I’ll leave I’ll look for a place, well I e have no luck and now we have been give 3 days to leave because when I agreed during meditation (I didn’t realize I could decline the agreement and say no) to find a place I was bound to this with no other course of action. My question is, what type of services or help can we get. I’m literally days away from he and I filling a backpack and having to hit the street on foot. I can’t bare it. The whole court thing is done. I understand many will have questions. I’d like to focus on help and networking to find emergency shelter/rooms for rent/apartment AVAILABILITY rather than could’ve should’ve etc… Thank you for reading this and any info or help is appreciated!!!
