She's in a bad place. Her husband has been mentally abusive to her. She has been planning on leaving him but hasn't found a job yet now he decided to up and quit his very good job and go to school. She has no family. Both her parents are dead, she's an only child and she never met any aunts or uncles. She has always been very shy and withdrawn and doesn't have hardly any friends. She was counting on getting child support to help her get by now that's out since her husband won't be working for the next 4 yrs, he's going for a BA. She tells me she has no choice but to stay with him because it's best for the children since she can't provided for them by herself. She hasn't been able to find anything that pays more then $9 a hour but that will barley cover rent in a two bedroom and she has 2 kids a boy and a girl but they are to old to share a room together now. They are moving in with his brother and wife so they don't have to pay rent else where.
I really want to help her but I am a single mom as well barley getting by.
She's already tried to go to a women shelter but they said she needs to be in a physical abusive relationship or they can't help her. This isn't fair for her. Why can't there be more resources for her? What can she do?

Have you considered being roommates with her?
