Kinda.

Well I had one small kid, and we stayed in a hotel. They don't allow children in shelters in my city. It puts young kids at risk of anything to happen.

So the shelter puts families with children in a hotel. And they give you $10 a day per person to live off of.

So we were not exactly in a shelter!

Do you just need to know there is hope of having some kind of normal life again? There is. You can recover from this.

There is a St. Vincent family shelter in the city closest to me. The shelter is for women and children, men are in a different facility. They make it as nice as they can and have good resources.

The best advice I can give is to keep your head up. It is not forever. Take whatever help is offered, especially school.

There is hope. Find a good caseworker. Tell them you will do what it takes to get out. Then do it. There's light at the end of the tunnel.
