I am at my witts end and feel like something has got to give and help me get her placed somewhere so she can get the proper care she deserves and needs that I just can not give anymore. I am located in Dickson, Tn at the moment but want to go back to Hermitage Tn where we had our rental home we were evicted from. Please help me . Thanks
