DEAR DEIDRE: Help! I’m stuck in a dangerous hostel with my baby and I’m scared. 

I’m 21 and have a four-month-old daughter. My parents kicked me out so it was this hostel, or the streets.

This is not healthy for my daughter. I don’t want her growing up here

It’s disgusting: there’s broken glass in the hallway, and my tiny room is damp, covered in mould, with peeling paint and the taps don’t work. 

This is not healthy for my daughter. I don’t want her growing up here. 

I don’t even have proper formula milk for her – the stuff that was donated was out of date.

The staff don’t care. I’m feeling alone, heartbroken and depressed.

I have no money but I need to get us out of this place.
