“Adult daughter needs place to live soon.
Husband and I can’t have her live with us due to her repeated past emotional and behavioral disabilities. She has no income except monthly Social Security Disability Insurance checks (SSDI).
She does have seven thousand in savings due to back dated money from SSDI, which makes her over the five thousand dollar limit to apply for public housing. Even if she “spends down” below the five thousand, there is a one to two year wait list for public housing. And homeless shelters are a temporary option, plus we would feel terribly guilty is she ended up there.
Husband and I are discussing possibly buying a small house where she can live, paying us a reduced rent.
Your experiences, ideas, and thoughts are welcome.” -Anonymous
