I am leaving my verbally abusive husband. I need some advice!

Right now I am so scared yet proud of myself at the same time. I am looking for some advice. I work full time but it is just minimum wage. I don't have much work experience because I was pretty much a SAHM for the past several years. I do have my associates degree, but my husband would not let me get my Bachelor's degree. I plan on going back to school and working. I am looking for a better paying job, but in the mean time, what resources can I get? Any advice, tips, suggestions?
