Yep I'm still here. Haven't shipped the PC off yet either.delle wrote:Well Hi there! Glad to see you're still connected.
Have you called the center? Got any leads there?
Or from the grocery stores, etc?
Here's a link to an "Affordable Housing Database" in your general area: http://findhousing.utah.gov/listings.do
The previous page mentioned that many of the rents are on a sliding scale -- rent to income.
Don't just presume that all rent-to-income housing is shit.... I lived in a rent-to-income house for 16 years. It was a blessing and a joy for the most part, allowing me a freedom I wouldn't otherwise have had when the kids were small. Once the crisis was over, I stayed because I wanted to...... becoming VP and Head of the Selection committee for a good chunk of that time. We had a nice little community going.
The important thing is to get on those lists pronto. You can always refuse, but at least you'll have options.
If you do want to fill out any applications, Please PM me. I know what catches their eye, and can help you fill them out effectively.
Seems to me all you need for Paypal is a bank account. The process takes a few days tho, as Paypal "pings" your account with a tiny deposit to make sure its yours.
Do take AntiM up on her offer for a notebook tho.... it seems a perfect stopgap before getting settled.
We've got to get you settled!!!
I will look into that Delle. Thanks. Your link looks like a different way into the same agencies that I found. Except that there were no listings or database. And when I called them there was only a 2 year waiting list. Can't remember what search parameters I used.
