A metro mother and her two kids find themselves kicked out on the street the day before Thanksgiving.

While people across the nation enjoy food, family and fun, one metro mom said she is thankful she is alive, but worried about how she will go on after being kicked out a shelter for battered women she calls home.

The woman claims the director of a Catholic charities home told her since her son was released from a group home she'd have to go.

"It is very painful to know that you don't know if you are going to be in your car tonight or where you are going to be or if your kids and you are going to be safe," said the woman, who wished to remain anonymous.

A spokesperson for Catholic charities tells News 9: "We have a responsibility to protect the confidentiality of people in the home, but she was given other options at the time she left."
