Senior citizen needs help

 
I am a 69 year old handicapped woman in poor health who has become homeless after being widowed recently.  I am well educated, and worked in RE for many years, but due to health problems I have not been able to do the field work, nor afford the annual RE fees.  I barely scrape by on limited Social security which allows me to cover food, but not much else. I am not a drug addict, alcoholic or mentally ill - just an old, tired, grieving widow.  Government subsidized housing has waiting lists of years.  I can't survive long term on the streets.  I owe about $10,000 on my car that I've been living in, nut I can't afford the remaining payments or liability insurance.  To make matters  worse, I had an accident that damaged my car.  It is in danger of being repossessed and leaving me literally on the open street.  I have no family to help me and am completely alone and overwhelmed.  As a senior woman, I desperately need safe shelter while I work on regaining my health and mobility.  I dream of a warm shower and a safe bed.  Can you help me?  $20,000 would allow me to fix and pay off my car, reactivate my Realtor membership and obtain safe shelter while I seek a needed knee replacement (I have Medicare) which will help me with my mobility and a chance to work again.  I hope it will buy me some time to move up on the subsidized housing lists for my long term shelter need.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
