  • yeah it is hard to leave when the rent is that cheap.....but wouldn't it be better to move to a safer place and pay more and have the kids grow up with a chance in life or is it better to get buy cheaply and have the kids future ruined from bad people.
    I raised my 3 girls on my own out of low income housing because I knew the shady people that lurked around there so i always paid well over half my income to rent just to make sure they were safe. you can do it if you set your mind to it and it also helps to give up alot of things you don't actually need.

  • Start shopping around for other public housing. I know of some in my area that are very nice and safe that take section 8. Call your local DHS office and use your resources to better your situation. Good Luck!
