huh? if you don't already have a voucher, most wait lists are closed, even if you can get on a wait list, it is often YEARS.
why not find 2 more people and rent a 2 bedroom, 2 people per bedroom.
do you have a disability? if so, get to vocational rehab to get help finding an appropriate job for you. they also help with job training.
unless you are actually SEVERELY disabled and unable to work, a widow with kids, or leaving domestic violence there is NO EXCUSE to be mooching off taxpayers.
you will get out of the shelter quicker when you get a job and support yourselves.
and it doesn't matter who you work FOR
