    Have been having problems with my landlord I am a single parent. It's been difficult to get things done on my own and where I live is not a safe place I live in New Jersey trying to relocate my family to Lebanon. I tried looking for places but one they ask for so much up front and by me not living there is not easy at all I have three kids that I really need to get out of where I am I dont have any other solutions I going out of my mind I have been in the shelter system before in New York city but I feel is time for a change. I have three kids one is 19, 16, 18 and I just want to make them safe. We have not had a good life with their father yes he takes care of them but is not the same when not around. I have had domestic Violance before back in 2006 and it has been hard to by pass that. And I have another problem I have three cats they are fix and they are part of my family finding a shelter that except cats is hard and to be honest will not like to have to give them up. I try to give up so many times but I keep asking god for the help. I have not been feeling well with alot of pain in my legs and now with high blood pressure. With the stress at home and not able to find a place is just driving me crazy. I didnt know where to go so I decided to see if by chance there was a shelter in Lebanon so I get just get out the bad situation im in and just start fresh with my kids. I dont know what to do anymore. All I do is cry everyday asking god to help me and my kids. I am hoping you can help or know of anyone that can help me.
