Save our family home and stability

Where do I start... Firstly I guess with it has taken me alot to swallow my pride and admit that I need help! I am a single Mum of 4 beautiful children, 3 of whom are in my care 100% of the time. It's no secret that we have struggled along financially since my husband left us approx 20 months ago. We are survivors of domestic violence. Something we kept a secret for many years. It's time to acknowledge what we lived through and begin to look to our future. Our journey so far to a positive future has not been easy. We have had to work through many obstacles emotionally and financially. Regular councelling and working closely with family services has helped us all to see that what we went through was not acceptable and we deserve more. At the moment we have been going through a lengthly court battle and have come to an agreement regarding settlement of our family home in which we currently reside. Unfortunately it means we must pay out my ex to be able to stay on here but it is something that is not viable for me to obtain a loan when my only income is currently from Centrelink. I am hoping to start applying for jobs in the new year as at the moment I am working through my depression and anxiety issues. I really believe it in the Childrens best interest to keep them in a stable environment in the family home if at all possible so I am asking for your help. I can't do this on my own. I truely believe that my children deserve to feel safe and stable in their home. Victims of crime installed security systems into our home making us feel safe here and so we will fight to stay here for as long as we can. We have until early February 2018 to come up with the funds to stay on in our home. Please help us if you can, anything will be appreciated. All I want is to be able to do the best by my kids as they have been through so much already, I don't want to have them lose their home too. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to read our story.
