Shelter and Mental Evaluation

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,


I just need help on how to get housing resources, I had to leave where my abuser and I were staying before, I was advised to do so when I went to ER and met a social worker, she advised I stay far away, I started moving from  friend's to the other, even to a different county because i dont feel safe, but now I need a place to stay for weekends because my friend i stay with now works weekend and i cant stay alone for now to avoid suicidal thoughts, The social worker I met at the ER gave me the homeless hot line number which i called but was referred to women aware and other domestics violence agencies. I called them, we had long calls, i told them what i have been through and they advised i go for mental screening because of the suicidal thoughts but they said they can not get me shelter at this time because my life is not in danger now and also because i have income $,15000/Annual.

I really thought i could get some help staying at the shelter because i really scared of staying alone and also though they could help with counselling and other resources. I am frustrated now and I need advise on hold to handle this, Please Help.


Thank you.
