    I.m single mother in a Abuse situation in I need to get out in I need help plz

  • User   2019-05-19 08:58:15

    I would like to know if there are any places that take in, or at least help, young single women who are stuck in a verbally and mentally abusive home situation? I am constantly belittled, threatened with homelessness, get disrespected, and used as a verbal punching bag by my mother. She has an alcohol problem and uses drinking as an excuse to abuse me since she 'can finally get all of her emotions out' which translates to all the trauma she herself as endured but is unwilling to work on with a professional. I am attending college to better my future, but this always ends up hindering me coupled with how my bio father is a literal psychopath who is keen on destroying her, my siblings, and I based on an imagined slight. I want to start living peacefully. I want to start healing. I want to get out and away from all of this, so I can also help my younger siblings. God knows they need it with the parents we've been stuck with.

    I would like to donate to your shelter. What items do accept other than clothing? Ex. Non perishable foods, baby formula

  • User   2019-10-04 18:22:38

    It's quite possible no one will ever read this so I can be transparent. I'm truly desperate. Idk what to do. I have no family or friends to ask for help and I could use anything. A prayer, your media platform or even a donation. I swear I don't typically ask anyone for money. I left my children's father this summer while pregnant with our fourth child because as a type 1 diabetic he left me alone with our children knowing I had a low blood sugar and was dying... due to an extended hospital stay after those events I lost my job and has nowhere to go. I didn't want my children to be faced with their mothers illness and I wanted to ensure my first son's health. I have birth early. I was due 11/12/19 but was induced 9/13. I know that my failures are the reason I struggle but I still love my children more than anything. My oldest two girls are going through puberty and me not having a home makes it difficult for me to prioritize them as I should. Idk what I expect you to do. Pray for us plz.

    Much like everyone else's I know this wont get read but here is a shot in the dark. I stay with my kids father and he verbally and mentally abuses me. He's a narcissist if I must say. I myself suffer from mental health issues ( anxiety and depression) and not a day that goes by I dont think of suicide because of this situation but I have a baby that needs me. I desperately want to get out but I have literally no one. I'm crying out for help. Someone .. Please.

    My spouse and I are natives of the Philadelphia community but we have moved to another state but interested in donating to organizations in my neighborhood and surrounding areas and we have a desire and compassion in our hearts for this type of disadvantaged, negative circumstance. Therefore we would be interested in donating needed items to help women, moms, sisters, daughters, etc to get a new start and refresh their life and family situation. Do you have a wishlist of things/items that are critical to helping re-establish themselves, i.e., bed linens, pots, health care, and beauty supplies, etc?
