All homeless are not broke

In fact, some people have an income, but they don’t have the income to pay rent. Some have a steady income, like social security, but not all Social Security is enough to live off of or to find an affordable place to live in D.C. For example, I get $905 a month. A studio costs $700 to $1,500 per month. This is too much for me to afford unless I have a government voucher. That’s the only way for me to live in D.C. So, what I do is save some money — at least 50% of my check — in case I do get a voucher. That way, I’ll be ready to move in.
