I have been trying to leave my husband. Two months ago I was referred to a social work dept at my hospital. I felt relief. I felt like "yes" this is finally going to happen.
I am very disapointed. I feel like there is no help for me. At the apt I learned about all the services available to me like rental assistance, child care vouchers and pro bono lawyers. However, I don't qualify because I work and have money in the bank. The money I make is enough to pay rent and buy food but I wouldn't be able to afford the child care and lawyer. It seems like in order to get help I need to work at a minimum wage job, have more than one kid and not speak english. In the inside, I am a mess. But the social workers and therapist think I appear to be very strong.
