Funny how when the government has to do actual work, they ask for volunteers.

Just a thought.

Even if they get the funding they still make it hard on people who need housing assistance. I moved here in 2003 and already had section 8. I missed an appointment with the self sufficiency caseworker and she took my section 8 away. She tried to make me look like I didn't care and that I was trying to fool the housing authority concerning my income. I was in training at Welfare Reform Liaison Project and receiving a stipend check bi-weekly. I told my counselor there to contact her and tell her about my participation in the program. When I started my training, I didn't how long it would last. Anyway the took away my section 8 and I got evicted. I had to move in the projects next door to a crack house and gunshots every night. Now I need help again and they tell me it might take a year and I said I may be homeless next month and the receptionist said it doesn't matter.

People need jobs and they want us to work for free?
