To apply for these federal programs, contact your local housing authority, your state housing authority. or a community service agency.If you have trouble getting the help you need you can contact www.comcon.org. It's 14.871 Section 8 Rental Voucher program.(www.hud.gov/progdesc/pihindx.cfm ) There is also14.149 Rent Supplements-Rental Housing for Lower Income Families, and, 14.856 Lower Income Housing Assistance Program-Section 8 Moderate Rehabiltation(Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments Program for very Low Income Families-Moderate Rehabilitation) for Public Housing agencies, look at www.hud.gov/progdesc/multindx.cfm .

The only thing I could find right now is :

www.comcom.org

www.hud.gov

www.nahro.org

www.dhhs.state.nc.us

 and I'll look tomorrow  when I'm more awake. You can also look under legal and find help for your mother to get the child support that she needs and has a right to.

Hi. My name is Desiree. I am 16 and live in North Carolina. My family and I are having serious trouble with our rent, and we're getting close to losing our house. Will you read my blog and see if you know of any place that will help me? I visited your blog and looked at some of the sites you suggested, but I couldn't find anything that seemed like it would help me.
