Sorry to hear. Need to get to know the person first before you can have a roomie. There are website for that. You can find that out. And check their social media. Check everything and ASK for references. If they say, "Oh, you do not need that, you can trust me." RUN! Get away from that. Also check couch surfing websites. That will help also but still have background check. Google it. They are Truthfinder, Intellius. For couch surfing.. couchsurfing, safetywing, and world nomands. Those will be helpful. Here, Deaf people are not much into searchng as they are in the other websites. And be sure when you sign up, say you are seeking for Deaf roommates. You know that if you live with someone, you get less in SSI, SSDI, etc. but if you have full time job, no problem. you can get a roomie that way.
