I am wanting to return to SE Oakland county Michigan, as far north as Troy. I don't want to move into my exh's basement if I can avoid it. My current partner is emotionally abusive and we need a plan soon. I am hoping there is a mama out there who us/hs who would like to co-op with me. My kids are close to 7 & 9, b'days soon. My interests are midwifery, sewing, baking. We do wheat free/dairy free. I have 3 kitties, 2 senior, one 1yo, all fixed.
Any offers, ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I'm so sorry that I can't help you; I live in a tiny house with my husband and daughter. I at least wanted to say that I wish you the very best of luck. What strength and courage you must possess to leave an abusive relationship and to protect your children. I hope that there are some mammas out there that can help you.

I know you can dial 211 and that's like a social service directory. They can maybe point you in a good direction. Sorry you are going through this. Keep your head up.

Check out co-abode, and try your local craigslist to view/post ads!

Best of luck!

If you're looking specifically for homeschoolers in oakland county, you might also try the REACH homeschool Yahoo group. They are huge, active, and will reach a pretty large group of families, who might even refer you on to other groups from there. Good luck.

Heather, I was there. I was only at the MMA booth once or twice, I think, but I got pulled to do other things.

There is also, come to think of it, the oakland county homeschool group, I believe, on the yahoo groups.
