I recently separated with my husband in April and had to get a place of my own. I have 3 children and am going through a very long drawn out divorce. How or where do I find help for rent and such. He has not paid me a dime in support yet and I have not been able to work due to major surgery and was a stay at home mom prior to that.Answer Question

Hey momma, that's a tough road you're on. Check out the DCF page here, you can screen for benefits and there are other resources as well. Use the Public Assistance Pre Screening tool to find out what you qualify for, and then you can apply.
Here is a link to your county's Housing Authority. Right now they're not accepting applications for Section 8 (which helps pay rent) but they may be able to direct you to low income housing in the area if you give them a call or visit.
