POC Sex Worker In Need of Help

A few months ago I bought a house. It was a good deal and in a nice location. There were some issues that seemed manageable, but upon moving in, there were many more that were undisclosed. Winter is coming and we don't have heat! The furnace is missing a part, the water heater needs to be replaced, the wood burning stove in the living room needs a complete overhaul. The kitchen sink pipe had a leak so severe that the entire floor needs to be ripped out! We removed the cabinets that were broken and rotten so now I don't have a kitchen. The appliances were scrapped because they too were dysfunctional. The foundation also has a large crack in it and lets rainwater in. The windows haven't been caulked, and the largest room in the house doesn't have insulation in the walls! All these issues were bypassed by the inspector who gave the go ahead for the sale. The real estate agent must have been unaware as well. The previous owners knew of all these problems and hid them with their furniture, and even their clothing hid some of the holes in the walls. 

I have spoken to a lawyer who says I will win the case against the previous owners, the real estate companies, and the inspectors. The lawyer fees are $3500. The kitchen floor alone costs $5000 to redo, the chimney and wood stove, and additional $4000. It's insane. I feel so helpless and hopeless. I know if I win the case, I can complete the repairs and I will have a beautiful home. To have my basic fundamental human needs met would mean so much to me. I'll be so grateful just to have heat this winter. Please help if you can, I appreciate it so much.
