Rental vouchers move families into impoverished areas, even when better apartments exist elsewhere

By Tracy Jan, The Washington Post Your neighborhood determines the quality of your children’s schools and your access to jobs, transportation, even fresh food. But a new study found that in nearly all 50 of America’s biggest metropolitan areas, low-income families using federal housing vouchers remain overly concentrated in impoverished, racially segregated neighborhoods with little opportunity – even with plenty of affordable apartments available in higher income neighborhoods. The difference b...

Broadway Pop!

I have fallen in love with Funko Pops figures -- they're so odd but so wonderful. In recent months, Funko has released several Little Shop of Horrors figures, as well as two versions of both Danny and Sandy in Grease, and big collections of figures from Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.But wait, there's more!

Can Someone Gift Me Money to Spend on My Mother and My Mom Not Lose Public Benefits

Thanks in advance for your answers. My grandfather passed around mid 2018. My aunt who he lived with and took care of him was the co-owner and beneficiary on all of his accounts so my understanding is that 100% of all his accounts default to her once he passed. There was no estate, trusts, or will ever set up. Supposedly he once wrote a hand written will but it was never notarized so it holds no legal value. My mother is below poverty level and her only income is about $800 per month from soci...

The past and future of Latino politics

Perhaps nothing will define our future politics more than the dispensation of Latino voters. Once limited to a few states, Latino voters are now an important and growing factor in many parts of the country beyond the Southwest or New York. Where are Latinos going?  More than African-Americans, who tend to vote roughly 90 percent Democratic, Latinos have traditionally divided their votes, with roughly two in three generally supporting Democrats. Some Republican politicians, such as Arnold Schwarz...

Laura Flores, who shares a van with her Chihuahua, chokes up saying little Gracie is “the reason why I get up in the morning.” Ramona Martinez’s dog, Sadie, is “more than my companion.” “I dont have anything else,” another woman says of her 4-month-old Doberman. The women are homeless; they look to their pets for affection and stability. Until recently, most pet owners hoping to get under a roof had to make a choice: give up your companion or stay on the street. But the need to get a growing num...

What does a little girl do with 14,000 pairs of socks? Donate them to homeless people

This thing with the socks all started in 2015 when Maya Aguilar was 6. She and her mom, Angie Covarrubias Aguilar, were on their way from their home in Covina to a friend’s birthday party in late October. They passed a homeless man holding a sign. That started the questions from Maya. Could she donate her money? How much? All of it. Something else she wondered: “What about when it gets cold?” After some research, they discovered that socks are among the most needed items by homeless people — but...
