    I am a 31 year old single mother of two amazing children.. I am so lost and confused on so many things right now I dont even know where to begin . July 1st 2013 my husband beat me and our 10 year old son as well as verbally, mentally , and emotionally abused my 15 yer old daughter.. He was arrested but let out on bond the next day so as soon as I found out he was being released I packed a quick bag and we went to a battered woman shelter , now these places are suppose to help us but this one didnt ! So we left and are now living here and there . We have only one suit of clothing and nothing else . Any way ok so my x gets outta jail and starts stalking us it took me 3 weeks to finally get him locked back up where he belongs .. And now my kids and I feel safe . So I went back to our home to gather some clothing and etc. only to find EVERYTHING  we owned Gone clothes,bedroom suites , washer, dryer, etc ... EVERYTHING .... I filed a report but was told theres nothing they can do since hes in jail already . I have made a million and one phone calls to churches , defax, and etc. and I cant belive no one can help us . Now here I am a good mother, drug free , and wanting to better our lives yet I cant get help to get on my feet .. I dont get it . Now school starts in 2 weeks , I cant work due to disabilities , we have no car now , no home , no anything ... I dont know I cant even think anymore ..... If everyone who reads this can please pray for my children and I we need it ... Thank you`!

I'm so sorry you are going thru this.  It sounds similar to what my children and I went thru.  I had to pack a picnic basket full of clothing and run. No job, no home, just what I could carry.  The first thing you need to know is that there is a way to survive this.  Resources get really tight toward the end of the month.  Have you tried Volunteers of America? They usually have emergency services.  Walk into a church and ask for help.  If you know someone who goes regularly, have them take you. Call the numbers you have again and again, persistence pays off, don't take no for an answer.  If they have nothing ask if they know of another place that does.  You have to make noise to get help.  You have done the right thing by leaving him, you will get thru this.   Dont waste your time on dispair, focus on getting what your kids need.

I really am sorry that you and your children are going through this. What a horrible experience! I know v2011 mentioned getting in touch with Volunteers of America. I also thought that the Salvation Army may be a source of help for you too. This is really a traumatic time for you and your kids, counseling is going to be an important aspect of recovery for all of you. I'm involved with a family ministry that provides free counseling over the phone with licensed therapists. If you'd like to take advantage of that you can call 1-855-771-4357 Mon-Fri. I will be praying for you too. Hugs!
