Wayne Hills Apts have nothing but thugs and drug dealers. It is the "Getto" of Portsmouth. Can't do much with the trash that lives there but stay away from them. Nothing but skanks!

I drove through Wayne Hills last summer......Holy God, it was at least as bad as the East End of Portsmouth, and that is saying something!!

Both areas have that Third World sense of desperation. I definitely would not want my family member living there and I feel sorry for any poor soul that does live there.....we need to remember that sometimes, decent people fall on hard times and might end up there.

I agree some people fall on hard times but my family members that are living there have been there for over 3 years I have told them over and over they need to get the kids out of there but they will not listen ,we have offered to help them ,I think the female is selling and i think the male is a user ,also have heard they have had the children high they are both under 3 .It was reported by 3 people but nothing was done Children service there said they were good parents,RIGHT

Being poor is not reason enough to lose your kids. Neither is living in government housing. We have laws in effect to protect the vulnerable and that includes parents in less than optimal financial situations.

However, if the drug allegations are true then you need to keep plugging away to protect those kids.

Sorry if I sound skeptical, but I've seen/heard too many do-gooders plot to "rescue" loved, well cared for kids just b/c the aforementioned do-gooders don't approve of where/how mommy and daddy live.......

Oh believe me I know these parents well and in my opinion as a mother of 6 and grandmother of 13 they are not good parents the mother lacks motherly instink she treats the kids like dolls as long as she is getting att it's ok but if not she ponds the kids off on anyone she can get to take them ,I have seen her leave them with some pretty bad people ,I've tried everything i can think of to get something done to either get her to be a better mom or take the kids away but no one will do anything and the father just does nothing at all for the kids.And I will keep trying and praying

I do believe they love their kids they just don't understand what being a parent is

Well, sadly, that is a lot of parents these days. I don't know what the answer is, but I do wish preteens and teens rec'd education about parenthood. I don't mean sex ed (but God knows no one is teaching them that either)....I mean basic baby and child care. Maybe if they realized how much work it is, they would stop and think before they bring them into this world.

Meanwhile, have you tried reaching out to your family member, woman to woman?? Maybe she would be receptive to help if she did not feel her parental rights were threatened.

One big difference today is that we are a far more transient society than even 20-30 years ago and a lot of young parents don't have their own parents, grandparents, etc to assist with child rearing. None of us were born parents, we learned along the way.

i agree about wayne hills that place is like a zoo.its the most nastiest place that is owned by the goverment and to put a family in a trashy place like that is wrong. my daughter lives there with her kids and i hate it. the floors and steps are steel and very dangerous for kids.they need to update every apt, there get out all the drud dealers.and whoever owns it should be made to live in one of the apt. to show them how it feels to live in the slums.its not fit for a animal.lack of maintance.water logged walls mold.and whatever else.my daughter hates that place and i wish they would have better housing for low income familys. and farley square is just as bad if not worse.yeah they have cameras up but what good are they doing.besides p-town to me is poor town and its like a land of the lost a little ghost town that shouldnt exist.
Good Luck

I don't understand why anyone who doesn't want to live there, does. They are HUD apartments. There are many houses in Scioto County that are HUD approved, is there some reason they don't just move?

I agree. There are to many other places to live and I have never seen anyone decent around that neighborhood. Everyone knows how that place is and if you had any respect for yourself you wouldn't live there in the first place.

Well, I might be wrong, but I think that if you go to HUD for housing, that is what is immediately available. At least that is what I have been told.

I certainly would not want to live there, but I suppose it is better than being in a homeless shelter.

It takes a while to get approved for HUD. Once approved however, I believe you are able to choose most any HUD approved house to rent. We have had several HUD renters in the past. They usually make great tenants, since they are so happy to have their own place. Hmm, we have two empties right now actually, thanks for inadvertently reminding me, I'll call HUD and let them know they are available.

I think we are talking about 2 separate programs.
Some people are approved for HUD and they get a credit for a certain amount of money and then can use that towards rent on an approved home/apt.
Others live in gov't subsidized units like Wayne Hills, but are not on the other HUD program.
