I am in an abusive relationship, I want to leave but have no where to go
I have been in an abusive relationship with my children's father for 8 years. At first he wasn't so violent & mean but over the past few years it has gotten really bad. He has been a drug abuser since his early teens & continues to use & now he drinks boxes of wine on a weekly some times daily basis.
We now have three little boys ages 6, 3 & a new born premature baby. He is often violent towards me & my children. He has busted my nose, lips bruised my body & my two oldest boys.
Last month he fractured my finger & ironically we both ended up staying the night in jail because I placed a protection order against him & I was in his house.
I have tried leaving, in fact in September I left him but in December I had to come back because I could not find a stable home for my boys & my pregnancy was progressing.
I have tried shelters but as crazy as it sounds they would not take us because of a lack of space. I want so bad to leave but I have no money or anywhere to go.
Because I live in his house he manipulates me & threatens me so I have no choice but to give him my money making it hard for me to save & leave. I don't know what to do, I feel so alone & hopeless.
