I am under 16 so i can't legally emancipate myself, what can i do?

I am 14 and I live in Florida. I can no longer live at home. I am verbally and emotionally abused by my mother and sister. My sister physically abuses me but never to the point where she leaves a mark because she knows she'd get caught. It has gotten to the point where I have thought (multiple times) about and have attempted taking my own life. But I know better and I am just trying to find a way out now. Please help me if you can otherwise I'll just wait until I am 16. I don't want to be placed in foster care so that is not an option.
