Lounge For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

Default How do I go about asking about quality communities?

For those who do not know, Section 8 is basically the bad neighborhoods, the projects.
The 'hood.

So we are to be moving to Indianapolis, IN, and I have asked a few rental places if they were section 8 places.
Seems this word "discrimination" gets thrown around whenever I ask...

Our goal is to stay out of such places. I really don't feel like asking every property if they take section 8, I have been looking for perhaps a list of rental places, as in - a list of places to avoid.

But there seems to be none.

SIDE NOTE - I don't see how wanting to live somewhere where our personal belongings and our kid will be safe from riff-raff is "discrimination". Sure bad things can happen anywhere, but in bad places, it is more likely.
Is there a way to find out without having to talk to every manager there is?

Just ask what the neighborhood is like? How the crime rate compares to other areas... stuff like that.

Perhaps you can contact local police departments and ask them. I don't see why they wouldn't tell you were high crime/drug areas are at.

Yes, there are bad people everywhere- including influential neighborhoods but you do have the right to live someplace you feel comfortable.
