Housing for single mom, no/low income and bad credit. I really need help!!
First of all....do not bash me, I feel bad enough with the crap I have going on as it is.
My boyfriend of 8 years just decided that he wanted to be single after having 2 kids with me. i have always had a job, since I was 14, but with our last kid (who is only 5 months old) he said that i could quit my job and stay home for a while. I had been on a waiting list for school for 3 years and finally started that this year. So...I have no job..so no income of my own, and I am in school full time for something that i have been waiting 3 years for....and now he broke up with me. I have still been living with him because I thought it was going to be easy, but he keeps throwing the 'I'm single' card in my face (along with a girl he met). I need to get out of the same house as him...he keeps saying or doing things that make me think that we will get back together but then he'll turn around and say NO! He thinks that when he can't get something (sexually) from this girl, that he can come home and get it from me. I am starting to break down, mentally and emotionally.
I have really bad credit because of him. We went through a time where we both lost our jobs and started falling way behind on bills and such. We had two cars get repo-ed and actually went through an eviction (because we had to move and the place refused to work with us). I have a few credit cards too, that he told me not to worry about because we didn't have the money to pay.
he says I can still live with him, but It is really hurting me mentally. I honestly think that he wants me to stay with him so he doesn't have to worry about babysitters when he gets into his little I am single moods and wants to go out....and so that I don't continue with child support.
I know a lot of people are going to say get a job...but I cannot quit school! I refuse to work at a factory for my 'career' (no offense to anyone who does, it just isn't for me). I will not have a lot of help from family for daycare either, so that isn't an option.
What I need help with is:
Does anyone know of a program or something that helps low/no income people with housing?? and what if you have bad credit??
i am sure there isn't much to work with, but I don't know where to even start looking/asking.
