    I lived there for 28 years and i made a mistake on my recertification and they asked me to leave. I was told about another person that did the same thing and they let her stay there and paid extra on her rent. But they wouldn't let me though.

    I would like to get information on getting a 2 bedroom apartment at this location. I am on social security disability. I would be interested in how much a two bedroom would run on an income of $1200. 00 per month. What utilities are provided and if a small dog is allowed?
