Victims services was a waste of time.

They were nice and explained to me that I would be caught up in a long wait for help. They would also only help me if I had nothing to help myself. I get ssi which is not enough to move with. but I would not be able to even have that before they could help me. I could get moving truck and first months rent from social services so that is one option. The problem is I would need to find a place that would take me in. I just went o go section 8 and they have very few listings. I would also need help looking for a unit. I know nothing about the state I would go to. So all in all I am stuck where I live for a while. Without them helping I can't move without my daughter. I could not leave her to fend for herself. Not with market rents so high. She could not afford it. I called a case manager last night. I know she could help me with calls and stuff too. So that is what I am going to wait on now. I just hate the process of packing up all over again. Waiting 45 days to be able to move after putting in the moving papers. Then having to wait another 30 for the papers to transfer from one state to another. I tell you it's a process.

It is hard to move. And red tape is lengthy and difficult. Are you allowed to share with us what state you are thinking of?

I thought it was all settled and you would not have to move. I am a little fuzzy on what happened to your brother, too. I was not here much for a few days and must have missed something important.

@sharon6345 ......It's going to be a job to get moved again. But, worth it if you feel better about things.

And this is why there are so many homeless people living on the streets @sharon6345 .

Sometimes doing big things like this at such a time may be in haste. Let the dust settle and if you still want to move then go for it. You are all upset and your mind all over the place at the moment. Don't rush into something you may regret.

I am going to take my time to save up right now. It's the only thing that will help me.

That is a long process to go through. I wish you luck with whatever you decide to do.

Yes, any big change in life is a long process. Hope this works out for you and your daughter.
