How to Hold on to Housing for the Disabled

Dear Apartment Guru,

Hi! I found you on, and thought you knew what the hell you were talking about.

So I've got a question for you: A friend of mine has been renting a Section 8 house, and has a daughter who just turned 18 and is disabled. She moved out for about a year, and was just getting ready to move back, but HUD says her mom cannot keep the house since the disabled daughter is not currently living there.

Is this true? Her daughter's mental disability is severe and she will always need a place. On that alone, can't the mom fight to keep her house?

Sincerely and thanks,
