Doesn't anyone ever consider the fact that the person on section 8 in simply LOW INCOME? Are all low-income people drug dealers or dirty and unkept? Of course not! Couldn't it possible that some people on section 8 are disabled (like myself), and only have disability as a source of income?
I look on craigslist a lot for apartments, and most of them say "no section 8". Why? I think it's because the landlords don't want "those low income people" occupying one of their units. The unit I currently live in is well-kept and clean. I've lived here for 6 years and have never had a problem with roaches or rats, and other stuff like that.
How do you feel? I guess this is turning more into a rant, but I'm just frustrated because I want to move to a bigger apartment before the snowfall (I live in the northeast usa).

I don't get section 8 and i don't think of people on section 8 as drug dealer or dirty and unkept at all. I have friends that are on it and they are good people and clean and they work and live a normal life like any other person in this world would.
Just keep looking and something will come up for you and your family just keep at it and stay positive. GL
