They give you everything you need because a lot of people just run without having to get anything. Don’t plan just get out. If you plan there’s a chance they’ll figure it out and stop you. Call the hotline find out where in your area you should go and go.

Some areas may have housing programs to get you into an apartment sooner, but definitely try finding a family friendly shelter

Look for families in transition possibly in your area. Group homes eventually working to an apartment. Mothers and children.

I was in a shelter, it was pretty strict for the rest of us and we had to share rooms, be up at 6 and leave the house during the day but the moms would get their own room with a crib and we able to really focus on their child. This place was in new York and they supplied everything for those needing it!! And if they didn’t have it, they would get it by requesting donations
