  • Just got out of a fight, being told I need to leave my house, I have no money

    Okay, so long story here. My mother just got out of a hospital, and my father's decided to stay home ever since, and he's never really liked me, but right now it's getting worse. He's threatened me with violence three times already, even trying to come after me just because I wanted to give him back some money I didn't spend, and now he starts shouting at me, telling me to get out of the house, and making stuff up about me, like I claimed that he was never even my father, crap like that. You guys know what I can do, and do you have any resources in the Chicagoland area? 'Cause I've got nowhere to stay and barely any money. Hopefully this gets resolved soon and I WON'T need to help, but I'm coming to you just in case, because I'm pretty sure this is it now.
