Affordable housing will increase crime and threaten the safety of children in the neighborhood. Affordable housing residents will be involved in drug trafficking. Affordable housing will attract other dangerous people or criminals. Affordable housing residents will disrupt the peace of the neighborhood. They will have different values and will cause disorder, such as public drunkenness, loitering, graffiti, and vandalism

I have lived in an affordable housing complex. There is ZERO tolerance for each and every activity this misinformed person listed here. The demand for this type of housing is far too great for the management/owners/investors to allow deadbeats to take them over. In case some people are wondering ... a deadbeat is a person who handles their business (personal and professional) in an immoral manner. There are plenty of deadbeats with big salaries/homes. The majority of people you will find in AH are single parents, and/or other hardworking individuals who are trying their best to keep a decent roof over their families head. Enough with the ignorant poor people bashing. We live in a system of Haves and Have Nots. Fact: it is impossible for all to prosper at the higher levels. Respect the truths of our societies. Respect the truth that everyone deserves a decent place to live.

I agree! the above mentioned comments are crazy. I use to be one of the "have" people-until my husband closed bank account on his way out of town! left me and our 2 year old child penniless! I lost house, car, etc. My credit is ruined. I can't get a loan if my life depended on it. I get disability-I can't get into low income housing yet-my rent takes all my ssi check except 150. my electric bill is more than that! this is day after Christmas-I couldn't even get my son a christmas present this year. we have food left for one day. I do not have money overflowing to pay rent. That is so correct-many occupants of the low income housing people are single parents. 2 income households barely make it these days-imagine one income! these critics should walk in our shoes for a few days. can't drive to town because there is no gas or grocery money. some of us do not have the resources to do any better. I am wearing flip flops because I can't afford shoes.,my son does not have a winter coat-there is no money for those things because it all goes to keep roof over our head.as for drug dealing-the state does not give insurance, public housing, any benefits to anyone who has a felony of any kind. crime and substance abuse is associatied with all class of people-definately just not the poor. as for declining property values-you can move! there are many neighborhoods loaded with restrictions throughout most cities-I am sure you can find one with your set of beliefs! schools-public means public-education paid for by state for "all" children! there are many private and religion based schools who will also share your beliefs-and smile all the way to the bank to cash your check!...however-many offer "scholarships" to the less fortunate-so your perfect child may come in contact to a child who lives in the low income area! you have a choice to move or stay-others of us do not...thats why we need housing. without turning this into a bible study-the "meek" will inherit the earth-not the high and mighty! no one is above anyone else-it is your morals and values, and your actions towards others that matter most. instead of condeming those less fortunate you should try to help them. whether you believe it or not-you may be in their shoes one day.
