I'm homeless with 3 kids.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My husband and I were having marital problems and he moved out,
and the kids and I got evicted from the apartment, so we went and stayed at my parents.
Two weeks ago is when the kids and I started living with my parents.
Well my husband and I are trying to work things out and go to counseling,
and my parents aren't happy about that. They accused me of leaching off of them
and being a tool of the devil. So basically we are getting kicked out.
We have no where to go and I can't stay with my husband and his parents
because his parents hate me. What can we do? There are no local shelters
in this area and I don't have any friends in this area either.

 

Facts :

I am able to get to the internet, because my parents have it at their home.
My husband was laid off of his job and yes, has been looking.
I am on strict bed rest. I have nurses that come to me.
I have to take care of my own children though because I do not get any help from family.
I am not in the hospital because I have in home health.
I live in a rual town.
The closest shelter is indeed 50+ miles away, and I have no money, thus I cannot get there.
Many churches I have called have a cut off of funds that they can assist people with. I unfortunately
didn't make it in time.
My husband and I are in counseling, and they come to me with in home health.
Are we done trying to poke holes in my situation? I am just trying to find a place to safely
take my kids.
I am not asking for money, or pity, just some info that any one can think of.
I have never been in this situation before, nor really needed help, so I've never gotten welfare,
or anything like that. I guess times have changed though.

I am pregnant with our last child and not able to work due to complications in the pregnancy, and he lost his job because he was laid off. I'm kind of screwed both ways. And yes, I'm working it out with the man who "tore apart my house", but, some people change. We have both been going to counseling together and working out our problems. At the moment I have phone and internet because I am AT my parents house.

Pretty much.

Quoting winkyloafer:

So you want to reconcile with someone who tore apart the home you were making for your children.









Godspeed, woman.

She said she is getting kicked out. She may very well be at her parents still...with Internet access....

 why are you reconciling with someone who wouldn't take your kids in???

 it's one thing if his parents won't let you stay, but for him and his parents to make your CHILDREN homeless, and for him to not help you through this?

 i don't understand....

i suggest cutting your losses with him, going to an erea with a shelter, even if it means collecting cans for bus tickets, and figure your shit out with the loser!

I know people are going to bash away at me for this but get assistance. You can't work. It's not that you don't want to. Also, call your state department. There are normally some programs that can help you get a place or even state paid places that go off your income. It would do till you and your husband can work things out or you can get your own place. Just please, don't rush into anything with your husband. I know you want things to work out, just don't jump into something. Good luck.
