Love how people get on here and act like they know everything. It doesn't matter what kind of job you have, they can not make you pay more than the flat rate. Sure, you can decide to pay income based, but why would you if it would be less paying the flat rent??

The highest rent isn't 249.00-you go by either 30% of your income or a flat fee-if you have children and al limited income I believe there's a discount-if your disabled there's a discount-but if you have a hefty income you pay a hefty rent- the only break you see is on utilities-you may pay your electric but they may pick up your gas up to a certain limit and of course your garbage and water-it's not like the old days-if you got a good job-your paying!

THE HIGHEST RENT IS $249.00 except in one apt, at the Humma building, it is $280.00 being a 2 bedroom. They take 30% of your income up to but not over $249.00 a month. There is a wattage allowance on electric, but the heat is steam and no charge in winter for anything but rent, unless you use your appliances over your allowed amount. I have lived here since my disability started when I was 52 years old, 9 years ago. I use $90.00 a month in food stamps and a larger amount than that from my check for food. My disability is not drugs and or alcohol, it is strictly legit.
If your problem is with the Spence and illegal activities call the cops. Unless you live with the housing, shut up because a nice car does not mean anyone is selling drugs. Just the opposite. take it up with Paul McNight. Besides what are you doing spending so much time there if you don't live there?

Y'all sound so stupid talking bout wat you don't know. Spence goes by percent of your wages but they do max out. My mom has a four bedroom and pays like 460. And if there wasn't a max shed be paying like 680 based on her income. She doesn't do any kind of drugs and don't get stamps or welfare Just loves it there cause its cheap and they take care of all her maintenance.

<quoted text>Really! I know what you mean. I drive an old car that needs repairs right now. But I look around and there are people (from the spence) that drives new cars. And nice ones to. And I know I make more money than them. I couldn't qualify for an apartment there because I make too much money.
It isn't what kind of car you drive but how much you own of it. If you own outright a car worth 2500 dollars, you own more of it than if your car is worth 25000 dollars and still owe 24000.

I guess I have to spell it out for you. How, if they need housing assistance, can they afford a new car (or even a damn decent one) if they have to live in a subsidy housing unit? That could be the problem in the first place. Putting more emphasis on a damn car instead of relying on the state to get cheap rent. Spence is a place that should be used by people that REALLY need help. By reading your post, you (onlyme) must be a leech on us taxpayers.

Older lady named Carol lives out there. Anyone know her?? She is a big welfare user. Loves going to agencies looking for handouts and getting "free" items. Does she not realize how pathetic she looks manipulating the system and hopping from one charity to another getting handouts!!

And people say that they don't work. It's a full time job to get all those freebiees. If they would spend as much time at a regular job, as they did trying to get free handouts, we would all be better off.

I couldn't agree with you more. This lady Carol and her daughter Ruth Hicks are both known to go to church after church looking for handouts and freebies! What do you think they are teaching their children?? Lol its pathetic to be grown azz women in your 40's, 50's and 60's and still manipulating the system. Quit buying dope and pippin pills and maybe you could teach your poor kids and grand kids some morals instead of teaching them it's ok to begg for handouts!!
Know her

I know Ruth Hicks and yes she and her no good husband smoke dope and he is a pill head. Sad those kids don't have a chance in the world. Mom should get her lazy triffilin butt up and get a job. Guess she is following in her mothers foot steps. Her mother misuse the system so what do u expect, her daughter just picked her lazy ways.
