Here is the deal, I am a single mother, I currently live with my mother, which we are not getting along, in the past my mom has hit me because we have got into arguments and I am scared to death that will happen and I do not want my son seeing it. She is emotional abuse, I cry myself to sleep at night. I had to move back home after I was pregnant because me and the baby's dad broke up, he is not in the picture at all. I do not have any funds to pay for my own place nor do I have anyone else to live with. I am in need of advice, I am not sure what section 8 housing is or if I would apply. I currently get food stamps and wic. I am just stuck and I dont want to be stuck living in an unhealthy environment. If anyone knows of anything that can help me please let me know, I live in East Tennessee.
