  • Verbally/Emotionally Abused LGBT

    Hi. I'm a 19 year old, pans and gender fluid individual. I live with my mother because I don't have the ability to make my own money and I have no other place to go. I may be putting myself in danger, but I just need to get out of here... See, my mother is consistently verbally and emotionally abusing me due to my gender identification and how I do my own things. Yes, I know that I could go to the Red Cross shelter, but I want that to be a last resort type of plan. I just need to know where I can go that's not a shelter, street corner/curb/park bench, or house of a friend, as none of mine live by themselves.. I want to be safe...
