    I'm sorry to hear the bad news. I don't live in Georgia but maybe someone will respond. It's also possible that your dad will relent and take you back.

    I know this is a less than ideal solution but I'm attaching two links for emergency housing and shelters in the Woodstock area. They are broken down by area and criteria. If you don't have someone to crash with, then please consider calling one of the emergency housing providers as soon as possible. They can put you up temporarily until you get back on your feet again.

    I was looking for websites for rooms for rent and found a few. Damn, it's expensive in Georgia, but there's some that are in a reasonable price range.

    Since you have a source of income I strongly suggest getting a gym membership at a 24/7 gym. That way you can go in at all hours, use the lockers for storage, and take advantage of the showers and clean running water. Not only that, but spend the extra time exercising and watching the televisions there. It's expensive, but cheaper than rent. A storage unit and PO box is also recommended but not necessary.

    Then I'd suggest buying a tent, fishing pole + tackle if you live near a water source, and camping gear and alternating camping spots at night. Preferably some with electricity and water taps. Don't stay in one spot for too many days as you may arise suspicion.

    Items I'd suggest:
    (can be bought at most supermarkets inexpensively at stores such as Walmart)

    Tent
    Sleeping cot
    Solar powered charger
    A good backpack / duffel bag
    flint and steel / matches / lighter
    fishing pole + tackle (if near water source)
    ramen noodles or other cheap food source
    a couple small pans
    hunting knife
    axe
    plastic utensils (they can be washed and reused)
    Foam plates (wash and reuse)
    Deodorant, razors and other personal hygiene items (A MUST for keeping a job)

    You'd technically be homeless, but you can live semi-comfortably without needing to share crowded and dirty conditions at a homeless shelter or at other places like under highway bridges, alleyways, etc.
    If you do this for a couple months you'll be able to save up enough of your income to rent a small inexpensive apartment. This is a last resort though.

    I hope you're okay and that you had a place to stay last night. Perhaps we could be of better assistance and more options if we had some details about the current situation. The term "homeless" can mean several things such as couch surfing, staying at a shelter or sleeping on the street. Do you have a friend that you're crashing with temporarily? Where did you sleep last night? I can imagine you're pretty traumatized by the recent events leading up to this and we want to support you through that as well. Feel free to vent about it and tell us what happened at home that led to this transition. It may also help us to give you more help.

    I recall your previous posts, dragon123, and I know you experienced a lot of problems at home with your family and that you were not happy living there. It was seriously affecting your mental health and self esteem. I know you're in shock right now because of the recent events (understandably), and the way it happened is terrible, but staying in a toxic home environment is more harmful to your health in the long run. When you get stable, settled, and on your feet again, you will be better off for having left a home where you were very unhappy and unable to move forward in life.

    Life is filled with transitions. Some are easier than others. It's how we face those transitions and move on that teaches us to grow and become better, stronger people. Just take it one day at a time for now and focus on your immediate need of securing housing. The rest will come in time.

    We're thinking of you.

    I know in my state you do need to buy a license to fish. There may also be limits on how many fish you can keep.
