How to apply for section 8

My mom is disabled, she just lost her house and is trying to find an apartment. She lost it because when she got hurt she wasn't bringing in nearly as much and couldn't afford it. So an apartment that's normally more expensive then a mortgage isn't an option. I think she could qualify for section 8 but I don't even know where to began I called the welfare office and the phone rang for 3 minutes then hung up

Idk how it works in your state but here the welfare office doesn't handle that. Google section 8 in your state. You should get a list of cities and phone numbers. You have to call each city separately.

I tried years ago and every city within 80 miles of me said the waiting list is closed. I would have had to wait 3 years just to get on a waiting list for god knows how long.

Good luck!
