We need affordable housing in San Diego the rental prices are through the roof and forcing LGBT senior/disabled to live elsewhere...where is elsewhere? We've lived here all our lives, worked and raised our families now I go to sleep worried about where I will live as I continue to age. We have no where to go. Now I know where the saying, "Throw Grandma out on the street" came from.

I am 65 w/a 62 y/o partner and am looking for a community to retire in a safe, friendly, and affordable place in Delaware. Are there any or do I have to move farther away. I am disabled and money is tight.
