In your search for housing you are in competition with other family units (individuals or families) on waiting lists in Warren County. These numbers include people on the Housing Authority, Life Skills and Section 8 Housing lists.
Many of these people are working poor, meaning they work close to 40 hours a week but still find it hard to make ends meet.
Many working poor have a hard time finding housing because of barriers like deposits, first/last months rent, good credit, financial statement showing 2 or more months worth of rent in their checking/savings account, poor tenant history or background checks.
Some of the homeless population in our community encounter the barrier of mental health which may keep them from getting or holding a job or managing finances.
