  • I'm 15 and I'm homeless. Can I go to cps?

    I have never really lived with my mom, just a couple years ago I almost went to cps because she wasn't doing so well. I ended up going with a family member, but that didn't turn out so great. I had to move to a different state with my dad, but my dad is in jail so I was living with my aunt. My aunt got into some trouble and she took off and moved to a whole other state. So she basically abandon me. I got in contact with my mom and we were talking and she was planning on getting me, but since I've never lived with her we don't have a good relationship. She told me she wants nothing to do with me and now I have no where to go. Can I be able to go to cps? Or what can I do? Because now I'm completely homeless.
