Housing for Low Income Seniors and Homeless
I have watched this project unfolding over the years and I am thrilled it has finally opened-there are 40 units, 32 for Seniors and 8 for homeless families/individuals.
What great timing given how hard everyone across the country has been hit...

OK, I have to put in my Please don't get me wrong..I am happy these seniors will not be homeless and living on the streets BUT my parents also live in an apartment complex for seniors. My dad has been working since he was 9 years old selling newspapers on the street corner to help support his mother and 4 sisters. When we were kids he sometimes worked 3 jobs so we never knew hunger. He pays $1570.00 a month for a 2 bedroom apartment where he lives here in California. There are seniors who are on section 8 who only have to pay $280.00 for a one bedroom and $380.00 for a 2 bedroom in the same apartments. They go on all the Casino excursions, play BINGO twice a week with all the other residents and even play poker in the clubhouse. Tell me how this is fair!"I am confident that, in the end, common sense and justice will prevail. I'm an optimist, brought up on the belief that if you wait to the end of the story, you get to see the good people live happily ever after."

Why is it that it is an automatic assumption anyone receiving government assistance is a scam artist?
On the other hand, how many seniors put their homes and half million or better assets in trust while they are able bodied and later in life their adult children reside in that same home and still pay senior property taxes while the govenment spends 8 to 10 thousand a month or better to care for these same seniors in nursing homes? How is that fair?
