Help Me Escape My Abusive Family

Throughout my life, I've suffered at the hands of my abusive family, and it has not been getting any better. Now, at 17, I want out. I have a safe place to stay, but I have no way of getting there. My mother takes all of the cash I receive (through babysitting, odd jobs, gifts, whatnot) and pockets it for herself. So far she has stolen over $3500. My parents are drug addicts and substance abusers (shrooms, cocaine, weed, alcohol) and frequently use or take these while I, a minor am in the house. If that's not bad enough, I am often left to pick up the pieces. I live in fear of one or both of them overdosing and me discovering them. I move between houses and towns every month or so, and at the moment I don't even have an adequate bed to sleep on. This has affected my grades and performance in school, and I feel like I have no way out. I am tired of living in this house and I want out. Even a dollar will help but please, please take time out of your day to donate or even share. If you have any questions you can reach out to me through my twitter @TH4TBR4T :) thank you
