Staying in room in Albany with my service dog....

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

For $920. a month with all included.

Was in homeless shelter for two months prior as lost my housing. Friend had cats we share and then moved. In veteran's home, dropped them with me, landlord saw one, next was getting 30 day notice.Got very overwhelmed with all the changes. Am back on meds so doing better. Been looking six months for decent, affordable housing in Albany area in safe neighborhood. Am on disability so can't look for anything higher than $600,1 BR with closets so can get rid of storage locker, paying $65. a month on. I have service dog and a couple of E.A. cats that make it hard. They currently are in a rescue group being fostered.

Just got back in TBI program, as have head injury so hoping they can help get me a place, with my animals, get housing subsidy back.

Stayed at Motel 6....

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

In Albany, NY. Was awful. Indian woman at front desk told me should throw me out, when I arrived, if I let my animals(one service dog, a couple of emotional assistance, psychiatric cats) on the bed. I stayed the night without incident. She came by my room later the next day, unannounced for an 'inspection' of the room as I have animals was the reason. She said place was sloppy.smelled.water on floor near water bowl, to clean it up, hair on curtains.told me to leave now,eventhough had paid for the night. I refused to leave and she threatened to call police, so I called them after asking her to leave which she wouldn't so I opened the motel room.shoved her out of it and bolted it shut. I leave tomorrow. She said my cats needed to stay in their crates. This place is not pet friendly at all. Had nothing but hot water in bath room sink to brush my teeth with. Bird crap on sidewalk by door. No breakfast.pool, gym, just coffee in am,no microwave, paid 200. For two nights! The staff were very rude.

Housing update..

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

So despite all my trying to get my apt. up to snuff(friend from MA. made 4 trips to storage, took me to do 2 loads of wash, I patd neighbor $100. to clean for 10 hours!), it didn't pass HATAS'(homeless and traveler's aid) inspection. No specifics on what need to do to pass. They commented on kitchen table and items on it and below it. I said, have no shelving or closet to put them on or in. they didn't want to hear my 'excuses' and will not help move me as said should have been bagged up(all) not most of things. not what was told.  Had cat and no pets in lease. Am going to get doctor note need her. Also they won't ask Judd to stop eviction but are leaving me hanging but will pay subsidy while housed. Did my best and can do more when friend Bill comes next month on 6/4 before house inspection again by building dept. on the 9th. trying. legal aide takes my case on 5/14. My worker tells me landlord can do as pleases as his place. Not so if paid up and have another year on lease as I do! Tenants have rights too. Sad an agency like HATAS, that is designed to protect the poor, downtrodden, vulnerable, doesn't.

Their mission: to prevent homelessness, 'HATAS employs a holistic wrap-around approach in caring for our neighbors in need and we serve all persons with the dignity and respect that they deserve.'

moving agian sadly..


as land lord wants me out in 30 days as have no thing but a month to month arrangement..Is hard as I have cats and a dog as you may know if you rent also with pets. So..
Went on a wild goose chase today looking at possible apartment and home rentals and did nothing but waste our time and gas and money thanks to slum lord Phil Gellar in Hillsdale,Columbia County,NY. Phil has a cockroach infested placewiht welfare tenants hanging around doing nothing and a mess all in the front and an abismal road to come in ..He really blows and so do all slumlords like him! He gave us lousy directions even and we went through the forest and had deer and sheep walk across the road in fron of us as we passed wild turkey and horses and black angus! NUTS. Beware renters is all i can say.

As a courtesy i am listing his name and now some more past slumlords i met since renting....Morgan Kraus in CAiro, NY 40 Grove St. property. he lives in NJ. Perry HOlst at my present location another absentee landlord who resides in Locust VAlley,ny...he owns 19 and 21 VAn Buren Drive cottages in Cairo, NY..and the corner house and the one next to it also on Grove St, CAiro. He is obnoxious,money hungry and fixes noothing! He rents the cottage i have ben living in ..year round and it is unweathrized and has mold. My sinuses have been killing me and i can't brathe well, since arrival,ugh..Roger Ploof in Albany NY landlord owns property near the YMCA and is a notorious slum lord apparently who takes advantage of the predicament many poor people face in trying to find adequate affordable housing...
These people really burn me up. I am offering a service to prospective renters by telling them of these clowns. You should do the same in your town to protect your neighbor as knowledge is power and in this case, ignorance is NOT bliss.
