      Hi Adella, I'm sorry to hear that but for what I learned, if someone received section 8 before and lost it then she could not get it back unless she left it with her free will. Is there a lawyer that the lady could ask for help ? Or how about contact the local office of the lady's congressional representative and ask for help ?

      I think the lady may search the congressional representative online by entering zip code.

      My dear fellow Hubbers, could you help this lady ? Thank's
