Yes it is true, you have to do so many hours of community service to live there if you have no income and pay no rent.

They are living there for free so in return they work PART TIME. Sounds like they have it made.

I think they ought to close the projects. It was probly a good Idea 30 yrs ago. Look how many houses sit empty in this town. Rockwood housing authority should buy some of these houses and let tennants mow and paint same as everyone else. Why do you need a cluster of apartments that people can"t commit to.

Ok really? Then where are u going 2 put all th displaced ppl at if they were 2 close? I work Monday thru Friday and I also happen 2 live in th projects because I still can't afford 2 live anywhere else not everyone that lives there is worthless. I DO NOT receive public assistance nor do I receive child support 4 my children so I have NO other choice but live where I have to. I just get really aggravated by ppl that judge a group of ppl based on what th majority might be. There are a few of us here that do actually live a normal life it just happens 2 be in a dope infested community. Maybe someone should address th management and what they are not doing right and who they allow 2 live here and who they allow 2 remain. You never know when u may have 2 live in a place like this I never thought it would happen 2 me.

So,get a job and earn that $7.25 per hour.You still couldn't live anywhere any cheaper.If you're not working and have free rent,what's wrong with having to do a little work?Sounds like a good idea to me.

I am pretty sure you can't see anything but the projects, I dont believe that is part of the American Dream to be included in a morally bankrupt community of Drug dealers lazy inbreds that live off of granny's check. I guarantee that if cops were to do a walkthrough every day, they could pick up a lot of people with warrants everyday.

Lets dont close them down just quit taking applications, when somebody leaves we can just knock out a wall a let other people have more room and keep the rent the same

I dont live in the projects,I work everyday and make good money.I have a morgage payment every month,I was just curios if they do community service,someone told me they did,but only a selected few was doing that they couldnt get the other to do there community service so the ones that dont have to leave.But I dont see how they cant kick a family with kids out on the streets even if the parents are dead beats,and want work a lick,its not the kids fault.

The housing authority gets to dictate who does what for how much, when, where, who all that sh&* why would anybody want to pay in to a dictatorship such as this anyhow. Tese people arnt being thrown out they are being rehomed,

Let me explain how easy it is 2 do Wats required as community service 8 hrs mnthly and thts only if u don't work at least 30 hrs wkly or go 2 school if u don't then u are required 2 do things as easy as pass out letters 2 all apts from th office they will give u things 2 do if u can't find something on ur own so if u can't contribute 2 at least tht in order 2 live rent free and also hav a portion of electric paid then somethings wrong its called lazy if ur a good parent nothing wld Stop u from Keeping ur kids a place 2 live espeCially wen itS so easy 2 retAin yeah its sad tht kids are in th middle but th ones not doin th time are th ones tht don't watch after their kids and let thm run free I'm not goin 2 get started on what I've seen out here its ridiculous management dsnt do nything about th problems out here I prAy everyday 4 way out ):

I know about three families that live there that don't do a lick of work and have kids they can't/won't take care of. They live there rent free, plus get some money for their electric bills. They have never had to do any community service work for their rent-free stay at all. So I do have to wonder if this is true. So either they don't have to do the work, or they are just choosing not to and are continuing to live there. PATHETIC!!!!

All I can say is don't u think management is also to blame? They are the ones that are in charge of making sure ppl do what they are suppose to AND they don't. I can tell u about numerous ppl that live there and don't do right and still are able to live for free.

I understand people needing help those places are there for people short time,there are plenty that live there and are very capable of working but choose not to,that would be a good chance for people to work and save there money so they can better them self.but most of them choose to be a dead beat and let the working folks take care of them...I work everyday to take care of my family.I am buying my home I know if I can do it most of them can,,,they hollow they have tried to find a job but cant,but let me tell you wal-mart hires people everyday,come on its a job.I have heard people where I work at when it comes to getting there yearly raise they dont want it cause they will cut my foodstamps.boy isnt that a way to think.I think i would rather have the cash.managment needs to reavaulate these people ,see how long they have lived there,see if they have been looking for a job,similar to what the unemployment office does,I had to interview a person a few months ago he asked me to sign a paper for him showing he came to the interview said he had to have it.forgot what he said he had to have it for,but i think thats what the housing authority needs to do,make these people look for a job and have the buisness they went to sign stating they came there looking for a job...there are other people out there that realy need the help and cant get it because there is no open housing for them.people that need help cant get it and the ones that dont and take advantage of it gets it every time,

I wasnt downing you for living in the projects,I was talking about all the dead beats,like i said in another post they need to make the ones that are very capable of working find a job,does it not aggivate yoau that you work and try to better your self and take care of you kids,and these other people lay at home all day and nothing and they get to live there,those places should be for people like you,who work every day and try.it just agrivates me cause the way some of these people get every thing handed to them.and bi#$ch cause they cant get more,I heard people fuss they make me pay 60 dollar for my light bill and they no we dont work how they expect us to come up with that much money,myself i would love to have a $60 light bill beats a $350...but anyway I didnt mean to affend you,I was in no way refering to the working folks just the one that are lazy drug dealing bums.

U tell me what 2 do cus I've made my fair share of calling th police & complaining 2 the office they choose who stays and who goes its sad...
