  • Have you looked into Section 8?

  • Yes, try applying for section 8. But that can take a long time to go through sometimes. Can you find a place that would be affordable with putting th e$533 toward it and you just pay the rest?
    You can try to get more, but i doubt you would get it.

  • Try section 8 and public housing.
    Employment is a good option too.

  • If you go to college you can get so much free money you don't have to pay back or pay tax on. Apply now and see what you get. They give you a large check each semester after paying for classes and books to use as you wish.

  • You can try to ask for more money but I think they laugh at your face. 


    Try to get a roommate so that it's do-able.
