Hi I am a single mom with a 10 yr old daughter that is facing eviction and don't know what to do. In February I moved into my home with my then fiance now ex and in March I was involved in Domestic violence and had to make him leave. At that time he was the primary income holder and the only car. When he moved out I had to make the payments and I had a roommate move in but that was a lost cause. She moved out unexpectantly. Now I am stranded here with no car, no income other than food stamps and now cash assistance as of yesterday and now facing eviction.
I want to work but I am not on a main bus line to get anywhere and have to relie on other people. Once I get my eviction papers I am going to go to the welfare to get help but that is just temp not a long time fix. I am trying to make the decision to go ahead and move and move into a shelter or try hard and stay here. I can not afford this place on my own. I have tried to get another roommate but it is not working. I can't get help with welfare to get a car because I don't have a car.
I have put my trust into the Lord to help me but I am scared to go to a shelter since my daughter has medical issues and my family is not able to provide a home for us.
Any suggestions on what to do?
