Today marks the first day of Domestic Violence Awareness Month
I just wanted to share what my journey has been like this far. I have contacted many organizations in my local area for help and search has been unsuccessful .Though my situation is extreme it’s not extreme enough.
- Because I was not a victim of physical violence I don’t fit the requirements to receive financial help. While my husband was cruel if he had added physical abuse to his behavior I could then get help. Legal Aide refered me to my counties family law work shop. I completed the workshop and was granted a 90 minute consult with an attorney for a flat fee of $100. At the end of the consult she told me that I could retain her for a fee of $3500. Everybody I contact I am told they can’t
- assist me. I was successful in obtaining help from DHS with foodstamps. And I am so grateful for that. I am still iny home even though I am not sure for how much longer. I have been able to maintain my water and electricity bills every month with money from the sell of anything I owned. I am still very early in my journey and sometimes I feel hopeless. But there are more times when I feel ok, I feel peace, I feel hopeful. I don’t know what will happen but I am Free. I am loosing everything but finding myself. Please if anyone can help me in any kind of way contact me. I am still in such great need. Please everybody that reads this pray for me. Please please please pray for me.
