No that is NOT how it works.

If he has ever hit you. Threatened you. Used manipulation and fear tactics to control you. A DV shelter will take you.

Where are you located?

Actually thAt IS how it worked because I called! They said because I am not in CURRENT danger. He hasn't in me in a year. But the verbal abuse is ridiculous.

Quoting JENNlEPEPSl: No that is NOT how it works.

Go to your local churches and ask for help, friends, family, any resource you can think of.

Sorry, hopefully you'll get out before he hurts you even more. What other steps have you taken beside trying to find a shelter? Do you work? Have you saved any emergency money? How far away is the nearest family member?

Then that is a horrible shelter and i would be reporting them! I have not even lived with my ex husband in over a year. But if needed a DV shelter is where I would go.

They cannot turn you away just because they don't like the type of abuse happening.

Are they full?

Who did you speak to? A case worker? Or a secretary?

What was the name of this shelter?

Family is no help. Nope don't work. But I'm going to a daycare today to see if I can get hired so I can bring my kids. It's 70% off tuition if you work there.

You need to contact different shelters, because that isn't how it's supposed to work at all. They will even take people just for verbal abuse where I am. 

Call all over your state or out of your state if you have to.
