I agree unless residents are allowed to hold parties or other activities in common areas as often happens in a group living type places: a group can reserve an area for a specific activity. I would have no problem with a muslim group or a morman group or some other group wanting to use an area for a purpose for a certain time as long as it's standard practice. If they can have a knitting club or chess tournament they could have some sort of religious group as long as any religious group is allowed.

But you know what...it can be hard to get a job to get off welfare that you can do when your kids are in school. Try applying for a min wage job and tell them you can only work during school hours. They will only hire people who are available anytime their business is open. So should we work or parent our children. SOmetimes you can't do both.

As for computers/internet: it is near impossible for a child to get through secondary level school without a computer or internet access. If I were to spend the time to sit at the library with my children so they could use the library computers we would never get all their homework done and get them to bed at a decent hour...not to mention eating dinner in there somewhere. I have one child with constant migraines who struggles academically and requires constant help to get through her school work so I MUST be home when they are....unless you want my child failing out of school and not having a chance at a decent job to support herself some day. I do not have a texting plan, tattoos, get may hair or nails done, etc.

I wish i know how they came up with those numbers for Disposable income. I am a single mom of 3 kids. I had to leave their father because he was physically abusive. I have less than the full time minimum wage income coming in. I do not qualify for cash assistance. I do receive food stamps though. If I could find a job, every dollar I make would be deducted from my food stamps so I would actually be more in the whole because they look at my pretax amount. If I earned $400 a month I would lose $400 a month in food stamps but only bring home $325 or whatever by the time I paid state and local taxes. So in order to make out ahead I would have to be able to find a job while my kids are at school that would earn MORE than I get in benefits.
