Single Mom and Pregnant need Housing ASAP

lilsbgirl started this conversation

I'm 28, and a single mom with a wonderful 3 yr old. I just found out I'm now pregnant, and to top it off was laid off in 2007, and have been working here and there. I'm desperately trying to get my son and I in our own place, as I currently live with his father. His father is an alcoholic, has drug problems and is just an overall verbally abusive and horrible guy.

I've gone to all the resources and just patiently waiting for a call back on some housing, but I'm really starting to get nervous. I will basically be homeless by the end of the month, and I literally have a buck to my name. I signed up to go back to school to better my situation for my kids, (get a degree so I can make better money), but its tough. I just don't know what to do. Basically all I need right now is a place to live, as I cannot afford much. I also live in the worst town as its terribly expensive but there is no way i can move. The little support that my family gives me (they are in town too) is better than the zero I would have if I lived somewhere cheaper.

 

Basically if anyone knows where I can find a place to live, cheap or where I could get assistance in paying rent would appreciate it!  

UPDATE::

Thanks to all who have offered support.. I finally found myself a place to stay, its not a permnant situation, but at least my children will have a safe place to stay, and I can focus on the future, and not be so stressed out. I am still trying to figure out the whole plan, working, school and how I am going to raise my children without shoving them into daycare all day long.

If anyone is a single mom of 2 kids and has any advise on how to raise your kids (and not dump them off at a daycare all the time) and still be able to support them let me know!! I really believe the best care is that of mom, but I have to be realistic that I have to support myself and be able to care for my kids financially too.

Please tell me what her and her son are too do for 8 months. i have helped what I can but my landlord will not let anyone especially kids stay there. Could you please share how you found help and any advise you could give would be awesome.
