Depending on whether you have section 8, there are different resources available to help you find a place. Gosection8.com lists apartments and houses for people on section 8, and you can even contact them for help. If you do not qualify for section 8, you can contact the homeless liaison at your children's school and ask for help. If you are on Calworks, your worker may be able to help some as well. In the absence of either Calworks or section 8, check with your local housing authority for information on an affordable place.
