After recovering from an audit in 2010 of $33,000 in improper housing assist payments,  and a restructure of  the whole department The Dupage Housing Authority is back to their old shenanigans. The main focus of The Dupage Housing Authority is to provide assistance to lower income people and their families also the elderly and disabled despite race, color, religion, sex, national orgin, familial status, and disability. Some of the Section 8  Dupage Housing Authority provides are given to individuals who do not meet their so called guidelines, very few are disabled or elderly, and some are friends or "BUDDIES"  of employees working in the office.

Gail Winfield Housing Specialist for section 8 waitlist is deplorable. She talks to applicants who are eligible on list for section 8  with no respect or tact at all and basically like dirt. Even if a person is eligible for a housing voucher she will make up false reasons why they are not eligible just to give the voucher instead to a friend or their relative who is not eligible by DHA guidelines. Gail Winfield has even been known to stoop as low to post false newspaper articles about applicants to prevent qualified applicants from getting voucher.

While many section 8 recipients have criminal  backgrounds and the housing authority fails to do anything about it when it is reported to HUD for review or about their DESPICABLE employees behavior or attitudes. Lorraine Hocker also at Dupage Housing Authority is aware of some of the underhanded dealings going on at the Dupage Housing Authority but decided to turn a blind eye to it and discriminate against appliants who really deserve section 8.

Yes Dear Really???

AUTHOR: marvin - ()

 I do not know why anyone would be sickened by this report. Most of us are taxpayers and since we are in the United States of America and not overseas, we should be aware of how corrupt The Dupage Housing Authority is in allocating federal taxpayers money inappropriately. Are you a taxpayer? Or even a US citizen? Or maybe a Housing Authority employee? I am a taxpayer and had a similar experience with Dupage Housing Authority with some woman named Gail yelling and talking to me like crap because my paperwork was not in order. She is a real piece of work.Section 8 should be for the low income, disabled, and elderly. People working at the housing authority should be grateful they have a job and treat others like they would like to be treated and HUD or someone else should look into their employees actions more closely.
