I have a housing voucher now because I am a veteran.  I will only have to pay one third of my income for housing – IF THIS WORKS OUT.

I think one of my friends is frustrated with me because I am not sure things will work out.  I guess she thinks I’m wierd or something…it’s just that I don’t have any way to prove my income to a landlord.  The housing people are kind of acting like it shouldn’t be a problem.  So here I go again jumping through the hoops they put in front of me, hoping I am not wasting precious time, gas and my emotions on something that can’t work out.

I have already been “released” from two programs that were supposed to help me.  There was lots of driving to appointments, paper shuffling and signing etc. but in the end, it didn’t work out.  This is probably as close as I’m going to get to getting help from the Veteran’s Administration.

Honestly, I was only in the military for a few short years and don’t feel I “deserve” housing benefits BUT I’m sure that there are lots of less deserving people getting benefits so what the heck.  I might as well try.

If I don’t qualify, I will just use my money to get a better van or something.  Also a friend and I could split the cost of hotel rooms.  We’ll see.

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

      I think one has to be careful with plugins. Some don’t work very well and some slow your website down. Photos slow the site down too which is why when I started using more photos in my writing, my stats dropped. It was taking too long to load.
