  1. I am having such time a hard time finding a place with section 8 that is just one level because the stairs are incredibly hard for me and no one wants to take section 8 that is one level what can I do one of my supposed to do how can I live like this

    • If it is possible get a stair lift. I have seen many on Craigslist. The cost to have them installed is very reasonable. Many can be installed by a friend and then have them checked by an installer. I have found people that only install them and not sell them. Best of luck in whatever you do.

  2. I need the most help find a house that is one level home because I am wheelchair-bound and have a lot of trouble living on the second floor if anyone could help me please help
