Phyllis Coates can tell horror stories about looking through the ads for a room to rent. Some of the homes she visited appeared not to have been cleaned in years, and a few of her prospective roommates made it clear they were interested in the 66-year-old Coates only as a nursemaid. Many also seemed aghast that she was an artist and recoiled from the thought of sharing the same house with a painter who used actual paints, she remembers now with a smile.

Demand for low-cost senior-citizen housing in high-rent Orange County is so great that the current waiting list for county rental assistance to the elderly is 5 to 10 years; no new names are currently being accepted for the waiting list and no new federally funded apartment projects have been planned in the county for low-income seniors.

Huntington Beach resident Julia Latenche makes cleaning her living room floor an important weekly ritual, moving rhythmically from one white square tile to another with a hand brush, a toothbrush and a little cup holding a mixture of soap, water and bleach. Latenche, 40, lives in a modest two-bedroom apartment but rents only a small portion of the living room floor, where she sleeps and for which she pays $240 a month. Nine people divide up the apartment, none able to afford the $740 total rent.
