No problem Kim. I lived there for several years and in doing so I collected my info so I could help others like you. I know first hand that it's a place to live and alot of us can not afford to live else where but where theres a will theres a way. I found a way because I had the will to get out from under there clutches and scheems. I just pray that some day soon LHA is expoised for who and what they really are cheaters, liares,and blackmailers. They think they are above everyone and have a real bad problem at lookin down their noises at whom ever lives there. Stormy 101

I do not know why you are trying to slander Lafollette Housing but I am a former resident and yes I got to know the maintence people. They are a great bunch. I never ever had any problems, however I always followed their rules, which were not hard to follow. The maintence men are some of the best people you could ever meet. I also loved Teresa, she is wonderful. The only problem I see anyone having is if they want to do illegal things while living on Lafollette Housing Authority property. If I ever had to move from where I am now I would not hesitate to go back there. I moved because of the residents and NOT the ones who are over it.

I understand some of what stormy is gettin at I lived there myself and I got kicked out I followed their rules even served on the committie as a vic prez they kicked me out b/c I lost recipts of my income and my emp at the time wouldnt give me another copy 4 proof. They kicked out my friends daughter who just had a baby b/c her old man left her and he woulnt sign off the lease so her and the kid could stay she left and resigned up and they denied her for no reason. so good people get kicked out more so then the bad ones anymore.And it's true since they hiared that chase fellow a lot a shits been goin on my dog didnt trust him and neither did I as for the rest they were ok most of the time but give m his due and he'd rat to get to spend more time with tondia at the center

i don't se a thing worng with having to do 8 hrs community time for residents. Most people work for their rent- housing project people should too, unless disabled or old.

No I was never an imformant. When I lived there neighbors did not tell on neighbors. We were like one big family. It sounds like you were doing something illegal or letting someone live with you that was not on the lease..
We also had the maintence inspections quarterly with main inspection once a year. That to me was better then being where they do inspections every month. If you are not doing anything illegal then you would not have no worries nor would you mind if they came in to do the inspections. They never entered my appartment unless I had something torn up and I called them to fix it. I had no problem with them coming in at any time. Like I said I moved due to neighbors who were trying to create problems, not because I did anything wrong. I do not do drugs nor drink and never have. Rude, ignorant tenants would be the only reason I would not move back unless I had to.

Why is having unexpected inspections and community service so bad? You are already getting a major break from the government by letting them judge your rent by your income. I am not knocking you or anyone else. I have had to resort to getting help from outside sources also. But, I don't understand why this has upset you. They don't have to help you, There is always someone else more grateful for the help. Do the service and be grateful. Not everyone gets the chance you are taking for granted.

What the f*ck do you expect? You're living on the government tit and you want privacy? I think you should be picking up trash and cutting grass in the projects every minute you’re not at a real job for the privilege of sucking the government tit. I also think that all door locks should be removed from all the projects. They are by definition PUBLIC HOUSING and who ever wants to stay the night should be able to. What you think you own the f*cking place? Take care of yourself and get out of my pocket.
oh my! are u serious?!?! i,for one live in government housing,and work EVERYDAY of my life and usually 30 to 40 hours overtime just to take care of my kids!! i pay 400$ a month in rent and atleast 100$ overage in electric..which i guess is a small difference considering rent is usually around 500 a month anywhere else..anyways,the point is,who are you to judge everyone on what a few people do?? yes some people ARE sitting around on their a$$ doing nothing...BUT NOT EVERYONE! and you better believe that i AM NEVER LATE ON MY RENT and i deserve privacy the same as anyone else! if i didn't know any better i'd say you're one of those who can't get off momma's tit,and has every damn thing handed to you on a silver plate!! but some of us haven't been so fortunate! so how about doing everyone a favor and QUIT TALKING ABOUT THINGS YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!

Your just pissed off that you got kicked out and if you really knew what was ging on and if you were really vice pres. you would know her name is tonda not tondia. Tonda is a very sweet girl who is happily married and if shes spending time at the center its for the residents and how long has it been since shes even been up here. A LONG TIME shes not even over this up here anymore moron.

duck all of you mother duckers for defending these guys to me they sound like crooks profiting off people's misfortune i bet they get some kind of tax break for helping people. they think you the tenant owe them something for them adjusting rent to your income thats only to make sure they can milk every bit out of you and keep you coming back. and you know what most land lord's are pieces of bit and these guys prove my point they want you to do something for there own community because you dont get paid a living wage. and if you think people are living off your tax dollars your just as bad as them. the thing is most Americans have a heart and when you do something for some one you dont ask for any thing in return like these people do. id like to add Donald Shelton owner of Dixie Property to this list. i will pray for the rest of my life that these scumbags and there children suffer even worse misfortune for there bad morals and ability to cheat any one no matter the circumstance. they are no better then there so called "deadbeat Tenants" they enjoy profiting off of so much. evry wonder why Donald Shelton has so many problems its because he makes money off of defaulted leases and cheating people. thats why he rents to these types and only rents cheap properties. i saw him move in the worse bunch ever it was obvious what he was up to they were gone in a month and some one in the next thats a lot of money to be made there. and he knows they cant afford attorneys its wrong what Donald Shelton does. these type of people need to go to hell.

I was on housing voucher with LHA for 4 years I was always a good tenant and have had a good history with all my residence been in Tn for over 20 years and when I was old enough to get a place of my own I only lived at 4 different places and left all in good terms. To make it short I signed up for LHA Voucher I waited almost 2 years BJ was my case worker and she was great. The income where I worked I made to much but I was still able to get my voucher but my job hours were hard for me to work due to having to work a 3rd shift with a 2 year old so I stepped down from manager to a regular employee. Well I did have to work the remainder of 2 weeks and my brother was in town and stayed with me and then after 14 days he left. I always followed the rules always paid my rent on time passed all my inspections and also turned in every document they needed. Well I went for my certification after Sheila told me she was informed that I had my brother staying there and I had to prove he wasn't staying there I had to do a appeal even BJ helped and I still ended up losing it I had a copy of my brothers lease bills in his name with his address and stil lost my appeal. I asked what can I do to apply again and Sheila said to re do a application but I had to wait till they were accepting applications so I called two times a month till I found out they were taking applications on 2/16 so I had them send me one I got it mailed it right away I had a appt on 8/16 and gave them everything they needed Sheila copied everything didn't ask in questions or nothing so I did ask her since I was lost my voucher because of my brother supposedly lived with me will it affect me she said no. Two months later I received a letter and I was denied for prior tenancy I called them for over a month because I deserve a explanation left a lot of messages to Sheila and she never called back one day I called and a nice lady answered the phone and she explained to me that any person who gets their voucher terminated can't apply for 5 years...5 years!! Really!! That's bullshit I know several people personally that lost theirs for not reporting income or not being there for inspection or fraud and they applied the same time I did and one person has her kids listed and the state took her kids and her house is a drug house she won't work charges people to stay there while LHA pays the rent but they denied me because I let my brother visit me for 14 days and that's the max really?? I left Sheila over 20 messages I literally called her for 3 weeks straight with no return phone call. They could at least told me when I went to my appointment instead of wasting my and their time I live 45 minutes away!! I'm a single mom of 2 kids work my ass off and you got 1000 of people using LHA but hard working people get denied makes no sense to me. I also called several housing agency and they told me they couldn't punish me unless it was something serious like drug charges meth lab tenant issues or lights being cut off etc.... I will never ever apply with LHA again. They would have more funding if they investigate those people that are taking advantage of LHA.....
