I have been living at my present apt. going on 3 years now. The first year was very pleasant, but since they have gotten new case managers my living situation has become a total Hell. It started when I started asking for repairs to be made in my apt. There is holes and loose fixtures in the floor and ceiling. Then my neighbors started harassing me, I complained about the noise and the banging of the walls they were doing and I also called the housing authority and told them that my apt. was not being repaired. Well about 2 months later I was given a three day notice to guit and leave the apt. I was told that I could get a place at one of the shelters downtown. I was hoping that I couldve moved to another building but they were mad at me for calling the inspector and complaining about the repairs that needed to be done and that I was causing problems with them. So I am now what is called an unlawful detainer in my own apt. My rent is always payer on time, I keep my apt clean but the people in my building are so power obsessed, that they have forgot that they are suppose to be helpin g people to find a home not to make people homeless. So I am now fighting my case in court by myself, to keep from going homeless. Keep me in your prayers!
