Have you tried putting the lease in your name as the primary tenant and have her listed as a roommate?

Hey SC, my heart goes out to your mom. Ive messaged a couple of people I know but unsure if they'll be able yo help. Just want to wish you the best and all the respect for taking care of her!

You’re a wonderful person to be handling this for your mom right now. I like C1’s idea if at all possible. Otherwise, I know there are local resources that try to help with housing (but don’t have direct experience with any of them) if safety immediately is the ultimate concern. I just tried to find a list, but know some might be in over their abilities to help with the uptick in domestic violence with the pandemic too. This might be a good starting point, and I’ll also keep my ears open for possible rent options... https://atlantawomen.org/what-we-do/resources/

Thank you! I will take a look at this

Hey OP. Do know know what side of town she want to live?

She’s currently in Stone Mountain but since she’s mainly working from home right now I think she’ll be okay anywhere in the Atlanta area

Thanks everyone for the positivity and great suggestions. I’ve been crying non stop so I really appreciate it. I’ve thought about renting something in my name but part of me is really afraid to do so, although I’d make sure she’s able to pay for whatever she needs I’m just always afraid to put other things in my name. I may need to let go of that fear in order to make something work though.

Thanks. Yeah, my background is similar. Not an immigrant but my mom has always had it hard as a single mom. I’m fine with leasing under my name now since it seems to be one of the best options but the issue that I’ve been finding since yesterday is honestly that the prices for these single spaces are sky high. Anyway I have faith something will work out. Thanks for the well wishes.

Hi OP! If your mother would like some furniture or etc — have a bed frame and a few items. Also would encourage you/her/I am happy to help (Atlanta Furniture Bank). I live on the eastside of Atlanta and have lived here most my life. Please feel free to PM me. So sorry to hear this, she is very lucky to have you.

Thank you for the offer! She doesn’t have a space for furniture right now but if she gets one soon I will absolutely reach out. Thank you so much fir the willingness to help

Hi! I use to work with domestic violence survivors and a realtor in Atlanta. I just joined so I wasn't able to message you directly. Please feel free to messsge me directly.

Ate youuu still looking??

I may have something! I’ll send you a private message!

The actual breastfeeding has been easy, which is why I feel guilty for “quitting.”
