The hud-vash nightmare

In September of 2019, I was living in a house in Greene Ohio and the landlord didn't tell me that the toilet was leaking in the crawl space for some time with the Last Tenant and code enforcement got tired of messing with the guy and they condemned the house giving me 7 days to move. I went to the HUD office in Xenia and I saw a poster on the wall that said hud-vash homelessness prevention and homeless assistance. I went home and got online filling out the application and got an interview pretty quick. The guy that was handling the hud-vash at the Dayton VA hospital is Barry Wideman and when I did the interview they told me that I qualify for the voucher but in order to get it I need to be homeless. I said no that's not correct and they wanted to argue about it but I only had seven days to find a place to live, which turned out to be 12dsays because code enforcement in Xenia gave me 12 days so they understood it wasn't my fault. So I had to go with the SSVF, St. Vincent de Paul veterans and family first program and they introduced me to a landlord that they had been dealing with for a while and I looked at a place and it was dirty and need a lot of repairs but the guy showing us the apartment said that by the time I moved in in 2 weeks it would all be repaired and cleaned up. So I signed the lease that day not knowing that there were 16 code enforcement violations already on that house. Two weeks later when I moved in I had to clean the whole place because none of the repairs or cleaning had been done so I went on the maintenance portal and reported all the issues that I saw. Within a week and a half, one of the code enforcement violations was loose basement stairs and no handrail. I was going down to get clothes out of the dryer so I could go to Xenia municipal court for the last slumlord landlord episode when the stairs came off the wall and I fell breaking my arm. When I got back from the hospital I called Midwest Acquisition and property management and I told the guy that answers the phone that one of the maintenance issues that I reported on the portal had caused me to break my arm and immediately and that's when the nonstop retaliation campaign started. Bradley Milward was the guy that answered the phone and he's the CEO of the company. He showed up two days later with a notice to terminate my lease and a three-day notice. A week later 6 guys, one of them armed, tried to force their way into my apartment. They didn't get in so they left another 3-day notice. December of 2019 they held onto my rent check for the whole month and then returned it in January along with the notice to go to court for a non-payment of rent eviction. I notified my caseworker at the VA hud-vash section and the SSVF supervisor just like I had told them every little thing whenever some kind of retaliation happened and nobody ever did anything and then when the eviction notice came nobody did a single thing about it. They didn't try to find me another place, they didn't get me any kind of legal help for a situation that they had caused. and I'd also called the attorney general for Ohio and was contacted by the Ohio Division of real estate licensing investigator letting me know that they're an unlicensed real estate company. I went to court eventually because of the covid-19 it was postponed but I was evicted in the middle of a worldwide Pandemic. So, and I was finally homeless living in a motel for 150 days waiting for the hud-vash voucher. I had made multiple complaints on the Washington DC veterans hotline several online complaints Veterans Affairs never heard anything back from Veterans Affairs and the people on the Washington DC hotline turn it back to the people I'm having the problems with and all they have to do is tell Veterans Affairs it has been resolved and the complaint is closed. Veterans Affairs does nothing close to being in compliance with President Trumps' VA accountability Act. Instead of handling the complaint they send it back to the very person causing the problem and caught one of them, Edith Thompson, HUD-VASH supervisor at the Dayton VA Medical Center adding False stuff into my medical progress notes, saying that I was getting aggressive and stuff like making unreasonable demands. It's a damn good thing that I went in there and pulled my file and looked at it because they were trying to make it look like there's a reason to throw me out of the hud-vash program. I was evicted last June and this June had to go to court for the second part but I'd already blasted everybody on Earth who could or should help with the fact Midwest acquisition and property management was under investigation by multiple agencies on how the eviction is real estate transaction fraud, and about the email hijacker used by a collection agency hired even before the case was over, and this is still going on 1 year. But I had spent every spare moment wallpapering the internet that this was fraud upon the court and when I got into court on June 10, 2021, their attorney couldn't wait to offer to throw it out. W
What started as a helping hand ended up being a total disaster piece. It has ruined my health, ruined my finances, and now I have an eviction on my record. Just a whole bunch of ridiculousness because of the unlawful way that the Dayton VA was administering the HUD-VASH program. And you can't find any law enforcement or legal help, The VA knows this is a problem and there's a lot of fraud going on. So my advice is when you join any of these programs make sure you desperately need it because they are going to drive you into the ground financially. Living in a motel for a hundred fifty days is very expensive even though they were paying for the room, everything is more expensive for you living there because you can't cook your meals, doing your laundry all that stuff it all adds up. It devoured any money for vehicle maintenance and my pickup truck is sitting outside on jacks because it doesn't run because it didn't get maintenance at all. I lost a bunch of stuff and a bunch of stuff got ruined in storage and the entire financial disaster and I didn't cause any of it and the people who did cause it couldn't care less about it. WHERE ARE THE VETERANS RESOURCE THAT CAN MAKE ME WHOLE AGAIN? How do I get back to where I was before the DEPARTMENT of VETERANS AFFAIRS started trying to make money off my situation?
