At 17 you are still a minor and your parents responsibility and they are financially obligated to support you. What your state can provide depends on where you live but this what some of our contributers wrote:

You can call the Salvation Army, Planned Parenthood, United Way, in your area. All will counsel you in your options. There are state agencies that will give you assistance in finding a place to live, medical care, and your other needs. Call the Health Services of your city or county.

You can get WIC, food Stamps and any other kind of government assistance you need. You might be able to, since you are a struggling mother, to get an apartment at your age as long as your working and can pay rent.

Contact the Department of Family Services (sometimes referred to as state social services, DFCS, etc.) in your city or county of residence.They will make an appointment with you to apply for medicaid, assistance in finding living facilities, WWIC, and other applicable aid. State and nonprofit agencies often work jointly to supply cash grants, assist the mother in finishing high school and/or furthering her education, find gainful employment, parenting classes, subsidized child care and so forth.

Im 13 almost 14 and your boyfriend is 3 years and 10 months older than you if you gte pregnant can he go to prison even thow its not a 4 year differanc?

Yes. If he's 18, he'll go to jail for even touching you in the first place (some places 17 gets you jail time too). Forget the whole pregnant thing for a minute. There are no laws about getting pregnant. Seeing as you need to have sex to get pregnant. Also in most places you have to be over 17 or 18 to even legally agree to sex in the first place, so it'd be a crime on your part as well? Either way, he'd most likely go to jail anyway so yeah.

If you happen to be 17 years of age, pregnant, and if your parents are physically hurting you, you need to go to your local police department, and file a complaint. Since you're only 17, the police will turn the matter to the Department of Human Services, and they will do an official investigation. If the investigation finds you are in some sort of danger, or in a serious situation, then they can place you in a foster home.
