Young single mother escaping domestic violence

Hello everyone. I am working with a young single mother who is in desperate need of some help. She is the mother of my former foster baby, who is now our God daughter. We love them both very much and consider them family. Very recently, the baby's father reached out and made promises to help her. To a struggling single mom, help in any form sounds like a blessing. This man is an abuser. We did have hopes that he had changed as I've seen this mom make so many positive changes over the last few years. Unfortunately that was not the case. Over the last 3 weeks he has managed to abuse her repeatedly, steal her money, cause her to lose her job and then stole her vehicle. Her apartment has evicted her and she can't go back there anyway due to the threats. SAPD was able to put her and the baby in a hotel for 5 nights but that expired and she is now at the salvation army. She is being harrassed constantly by her abuser and he has not been picked up yet (he fled to another town). I am trying to get funds together to get her a vehicle. There aren't many resources out there (trust me, we have been on the phone for days). If she had a car again she can get back to work and start moving forward towards rebuilding. She lost absolutely everything. She is also a full time student and we are working with an advocate through the school for funds, but all these things take time and are not guaranteed. Anything helps. She has no family other than us.
