by finding a local church and MOVING OUT. Catholic churches will be especially helpful, some of them even have homes that they provide for abused women, pregnant women, etc. Good luck

Do you have a phone? Call the police get a restraining order leave when he is gone and go somewhere such as family's house or a shelter to get your on your feet again. Just because you don't have an education doesn't mean that you can't stand on your own two feet.
