To make this short my ex (sf) is hitting rock bottom. He has no car, no job (his work history isn't great), and know is moving out of his apt into an office!!! I can not allow are son to be there. I guess my two concerns are: 1, afraid he won't be in his child's life 2, he will become homeless. Please any advice is helpful. Thank you

It is for all of us, I have to give him credit he is a wonderful father. I'm thing about suggesting he go to the Dr. For depression but don't know how to bring it up.

 That is so tough.  If you have a good relationship still and good communication maybe brining up the depression thing would be a good idea.  Is he on any public assistance like food stamps and such?  If not then maybe he can apply for those until he can get back on his feet.  Hugs to you.

Thanks...I'm going to bring him to dhs Friday, maybe he can get med assistants. Does anybody know for help for jobs. He's to old for job corp so I have no clue. Also has anyone in the area heard of Aspen Pointe? Do you think he could benefit from that?

I'm sorry that your ex is going through that :-( however there are many places he can turn to for help. There are church shelters that take people in, feed and clothe them, and then help them find jobs, maybe he could look into something like that?
