My best friend and I have come to a crossroads in our lives.... we are both stuck in abusive relationships( mostly mental abuse - even though both of them have hit us before)
we both have 2 kids each ( I have a 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son and she has a 3 year old son and an 1 year old son ) . We have both realized that we need to get ourselves and our children away from these men before it gets worse.
We are both 23, we both met them in high school and have never worked ( stay at home moms) , neither of us know how to drive and we just do not know what to do, we live in a very small town where there is no jobs at all ( we only have a gas station, a mcdonalds and a krogers - none of them are hiring, not that either of us has any kind of schooling or work experiance or skills)
I am married to him , and I know my kids and I probably could stay with family but not anything long term. She isnt married and doesn't really have any family around - her mom offered to help her out but she is afriad since it will be in another city in a very BAD neighborhood ( drug infested, police is there several times a day, etc) ...
Of course if we could get away we do both plan on trying to find jobs... but the main part is trying to get some assistance ( like a place to stay and money to live on ) ...
Neither of us really know anything about public assistance
we also live in ohio .
