Depends on whether either of ya'll work or have reliable cash coming in .... There's all sorts of places that are "income based" BUT my own personal choice has always been WHAT I WANT ... Where are looking to move to?? Town, section of town, etc

Kid, we're all going thru hard times without being prepared. You'll do fine ...ok??? There's that complex in Barboursville called Forest Bluff, That is ONE HELLA place to live. I liked living there. Income based but you have to have steady income comeing in (Work, SSD, SSI, Welfare, etc)... that's the same with all income based living. Hopefully you signed up for HUD. It'll take 1-10 years to get it, but.. it's worth a try. There's Mary Lane Estates in B'ville as well. There's that one on Vetern's Memorial Blvd (can't remember the name) close to the Nat'l Guard Amory ... They're income based as well.

You're welcome. Sign up for Job Services and take the Civil Service test that way you can get a state/govt job with killer insurance benefits. Since your pregnant, you qualify for a WV Medicaid card which will only pay for doctor stuff while you're pregnant BUT, it will help the baby once it's born. I've saw a lot of other houses for rent here in town but, they're all pretty expensive if you don't have any income coming in. I do know that B'ville has a lot of places out East Pea Ridge for rent. They're on a bus line too :D Another thing you can do is the City Mission or Harmony House. They have all kinds of connections they can help you with.

Thanks nlj I couldn't remember what that places name was ... LOL!!

Hi. Wow. Babies are a lot of work. There is help available. How old are you and the babies father? Reason I'm asking is that depending on your ages I may know of some special government programs to steer you towards. Do you work or does your fiance? Do you have insurance or do you need insurance?

The original poster could probably sell that phone or pc they are using to post on this forum. Just sayin! Have you thought about having a gaggle of children? They are your best source for income and you will be well on your way to winning the West Virginia Lottery (i.e. welfare). I thought about winning it once, but then my conscience wouldn't let me :(

If you need a home in hunt, then you are screwed. All of the income based apartments in hunt are horrible and lots of blacks. Forrest Bluff (barboursville) is the best apartments for income based. Its all white people and no crime. You do have to have a job though to get in or atleast some kind of income like ssi..You wont be accepted as a tenant without money for rent. You have to pay for utilities there to..Your situation sounds alot like me and my husband when we needed a place. Also you cant have a waitress job either because its not guranteed income. The first time we applied there they would not accept us because I was a waitress. Plus my credit score was very bad too. Good luck!

Ms Sara,
It offends me (and others like me) to have read your second and fourth sentences in your post. Human beings are human beings regardless of their background or anything else. There's a shitload of "white" people I wouldn't want to live around regardless of the city I moved to. Racism should NEVER be a part of the equation regardless of the situation. "White" people steal, lie, cheat, do drugs, and treat you like shit just like "blacks", "orientals", "middle easterners", etc ... Like I said, human beings are human beings and their dispositions and outlook on things all go hand in hand with how they are/were raised. Too bad you probably taught your children to have the sort of racial attitude that you do.

U got that right babe!! The saddest part about being an American anymore is the fact that 70% of citizens nowadays cant figure out how to stand on their own two feet.

Someone asked the O.P. if her/fiance could live with the parents etc. When the shit hit the fan for me; my children and I never asked for any help from the "family" or the gov't. I worked three jobs, put myself through college, and stood tall. I provided for my children in all aspects of basic essentials without child support, monetary gifts from anyone, and I taught my children to have respect. Anything they wanted that was "extra" (video games, jewelry, etc) they had to work for it. If you don't work for what you want, you don't get it. I put them outside with a lawn mower in hand to work for and earn their money when they turned 12.

It's sad that most citizens in this country has lost the motivation, willpower, and drive to do what they need/have to do in order to survive. I see a lot of people who thrive on the gov't hand outs (with and without children) who I personally feel that could get off their a$$ and find something to do to earn their keep in this world. It also irritates me that the US govt doesn't care if the citizens have manufacturing, production, cultivation, etc jobs. It's just my opinion tho and everyone has one.

why is it a person needs to be married to get help from the city mission??? Can a single working homeless mother of three children not get any help from the city mission because she isn't married?? Im just wondering if the homeless shelter in our area has stipulations on a person getting help.. If so it descrimination

How do you explain that even though blacks only make up 17% of the population they commit 65% of the crime, that the city's with the highest crime rates are directly correlated with the highest black population, that every black ran country is disease infested, brutalized, and starving?

Here you all go making every single post about black and drugs. Someone can have an opinion about hair and some stupid inbreed will bring race into it. Someone might start a post about a shooting star and one of you rejects will get on here and say it was a black in outer space shooting a gun over drugs. Racism has taken your brains over. I bet even the one word forums have racism.

Lots of points of view on those statistics. It's likely a combination of all of them in some specific mix.
