I had a job as an office manager for 10 years but got laid of 4 years ago and haven't been able to hold a job down since .I'm an honest hard working reliable trustworthy person. Just looking for a break and a chance to get back on my feet before I have a nervous breakdown ...any advice welcome ..

Does the shelter have a social worker that can help you transition? Also, you need some legal advice about seeking support from dad. If you live in the US call WINGS (women in need growing stronger) They specialize in housing women of domestic abuse. Even if they offer you a home far from where you are now, it would be better than living on the street. Are the kids in school? Maybe you can find work while they are at school. Don't be afraid to ask for help from school system, whether it's free lunch or extended care for your kids while you work.
You situation is unfortunate, but why on earth would your own family not help you?
