I am a tenant currently on Section 8 who, because I have health issues and so does my mom whom I help, hasn’t been able to access my mailbox since I had a bad car accident. As a result, my voucher is at risk of being terminated. I can’t find suitable housing for us to move into due to my issues and with the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this and the nonpayment of rent, my landlord is trying to threaten me with eviction if I don’t sign a new lease, so that he can resume getting payments through their assistance, or else I have to move out. I don’t want to reside in my unit anymore and want to move, it’s just that until I can come up with a resolution as to why my landlord is not receiving the payments, or I find a new place soon, I’m forced to stay here. I need resources to help me find a place, or I need housing to continue paying the rent on a month-to-month basis like they have been doing since May. This process has been very frustrating, not to mention I am overwhelmed by all I have went through thus far, and it’s causing a great deal of stress. Hoping I get it all resolved and praying things get better for me.
