You're in a hurry for an answer? Be patient. I'm sure if you have a felon in your home, you have patience. Someone on Topix will come along with an answer. You only posted the question about 20+ minutes ago.....

You can get help through DHS as long as it isn't a drug charge. I'm a felon and I get foodstamp.

I applied for government housing and they wanted to fingerprint me. It is bad enough being homeless, but to have my name and prints in the national database? I chose a different route.

Your name and prints in the database are a good thing. If you are ever murdered, etc. then they can identify your body quicker and easier than with dental records. They also do it to ensure people are lying about felonies to get into public housing because that happens all the time.

Murdered? Now, that's something I never thought about.

be an alien and you don't worry about it they will let someone that is not from this country lie and get all kind of benefits, some of us that do need it go through homeless and some more shi* to get a place to stay! I was behind a mexican in save-alot and she left her reciept behind, she had two buggies and a thousand more dollars on her card driving a better car than I ever had!

When you apply for housing or food stamps your suppose to list everyone in the household. If one of them is a felon, with a drug charge, don't waste your time. I don't know about theft felonies but it should be the same. They won't let druggies get fooders cause they will go sell them to get their fix as would a thief. DHS is starting to crack down and I sure would not risk lying about it because of you get caught you could be looking at a felony yourself and it isn't worth it.

If you want free government housing,
Or a foodie card, then make your case;

All I know is IF you lie about a drug charges and convictions they will turn you down. I do know of people that's definitely has been convicted on drug charges and a felony and currently on probation that gets food stamps for them and their family and this person isn't hiding a thing or from probation officers.

Sure! These idiots get more help than anyone else!! Go ahead and ask away! If they will give the troublemakers anything they want go for it. In four days you are out of luck so you better ask I guess!
