Mom's Rent & Bills so we have a home

On March 28th I was diagnosed at a hospital with Pleurisy, around the same time my Mom got laid off from her job, only getting an 11 day job in April with the furniture market to pay all of April's rent except for the hot water. She's been trying so hard and sending out resumes, and applying to jobs but not finding anything until recent, where she then got a job with ADT at the beginning of May, and has been working for them for all of May but hasn't made over $100, and rent & other bills are due in two weeks or less. I still have Pleurisy 8 weeks later, only to just now get the chance to go to a general doctor because of Medicaid and had blood taken & chest xray's and won't hear back for a few days. I barely leave the house, and I've come to the point where despite being sick I'm looking for a job, but I'm having trouble. We don't have enough money to pay rent and our bills, and if we lose this apartment we've been in for 10 years, My Mom won't have a place to go & I will have to stay somewhere in Raleigh. I don't want to be seperated from my Mom because she cannot come with me, and I don't want to leave her. If we just had the time to get off our feet so she can get a better job, and I can heal up & get a job too. Then we can keep the apartment & make it through this, but there is no way we can do it in time right now and we need help. My Mom has tried so hard for me. I love her so much I don't want her to be homeless. Our family doesn't want to help out, my Dad is dodging child support and I have no idea what to do anymore besides this. I want my Mom to have a roof over her head & to be able to keep our dogs. We get evicted notice on May 31st so we'll have to be out by June 7th or the 9th. and I'm looking for a miracle. Anything will help. Please help me & my Mom.

1400 is to pay for rent by the end of this month (May 30th)
the extra 600 is momentum for next month while me & my Mom secure jobs
