  • A lot of shelters do give women cell phones to use in case of an emergency, but they are usually only enabled to call 911. Most shelters only "GIVE" things that are essetial to living (ie. shelter, food , clothing) Their main concern is with getting you to safety and helping you become self reliant so you don't feel the need to return to your abuser. There are shelters who will help you with education, and job searches so that you can get on your feet and earn money to buy things like your own laptop and cell phone.

  • Also shelters will have phones and computers for you to use while you are staying there.

  • Ywca or other domestic violence shelters help in that area. It depends on what state you are in. You may want to contact someone at the doctor's office because you have to take the kids to the docotr and this can be a way to quietly reach out for help. Good Luck.
