What do you say if he has two black eyes? Nothing you told him twice.

Moving is so right for you.
Reading about your predicament was so sad.
Not sad about what your situation with the landlord was, but sad about how much the landlord seemed to affect your life. I could just see you getting deeper and deeper into this problem until there was a catastrophic result for you. I'm sure the stress affects your immune system and you would have become sick with serious illnesses.
You don't need the stress in your life and moving is the right thing to do.

I didn't read all this, but I gotta ask. Did you sign a rental agreement? What does it say, exactly?
You are bound by the lease agreement.
There are a few exceptions, but the lease agreement could mean that you never accomplish your goal of getting what you want. Read it carefully and make sure you understand every single word in the lease.
Once you understand the lease, then learn about the few protections you have that are not in the lease. Those are few and hard to enforce so don't get your hopes up.

As others have pointed out, in every municipality that I am aware of, they have officials on staff who's job it is to enforce the local ordinances. If it's a health issue, like insects, vermin, leaking sewage, call the health dept. If it's a fire hazhard, call the fire safety official, or contact the local fire dept. If it's a building code violation, like rotted unsafe deck, electrical, etc, there should be a municipal code enforcement dept. If not, talk to the building inspector.
In addition, I would inquire with the municipality as to what is required before a tenant moves into rental housing. Here in NJ, most places the landlord needs to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy, just as they would for a sale. This entails the code folks coming out and doing a walk-through inspection to make sure the place is up to code and inhabitable.
Having said that, I also agree with the advice to just move, possibly using up your security deposit by not paying rent till you leave. She can't get you evicted that fast. If you decide you need to move with her still holding your money, then document everything. Take lots of pics. A video is even better. Make sure a friend or two that can be witnesses see everything. Try to get something from her in writing that says she told you to move. If that can't be done, send her a letter 2 ways, regular mail and certified so she has to sign for it. In the letter just summarize that you understand you must leave because she told you that you had to, when you will be out, that you expect you full security deposit returned because she told you that you have to leave, etc.
Then after you leave, sue her in small claims court for any money she withholds.

name.Most especially document and photo any hazards, such as electrical.Then move...get your family somewhere safe. Document and photo any damage you did and how you repaired it. After you have a new place,you have the option of an attorney..or small claims court.
For everyone else: Sometimes your only 2 options are temporary shelter in a bad place..or living on the street. If you have never been forced into that choice,you are truly blessed and need to say a prayer of thanks...right now. Most people like to think they are "set up"...but are not as far from the street as they believe. An illness or some other unforeseen occurrence can leave most of us destitute and homeless( or living with relatives) in 6 months or less. Count your blessings.

Smell that smoke? Sure you do, try a little harder. Must be arcing in the electrical wiring. Call the fire department. They will pull the meter and the utility won't reconnect you until a licensed electrician has checked it out as being safe.
You might want to have a place to move to.

Wow, what a piece of work she is. So she just wants you to live in that bug infested, broken down place and pay your rent every month like a good little renter?!?! Yeah, it's best to have promises in writing. Because if it goes to court, she won't fess up or "remember" what she promised you.
