Gunn has called about 40 places but hasn’t found another apartment. “It’s not looking good for me,” he said. “I don’t know where I’m going to go.”

Late last week, though, LaCluir got good news. After more than 50 calls, she found an apartment in West St. Paul that participates in Section 8.

“I said to them, ‘You’re not going to sell this place, are you?’ They laughed and said no,” LaCluir said. “I just would hate to have to go through this again.”
