Help for a friend

I have a single,  55 year old friend and former co-worker, whose job was suddenly "eliminated"  a week ago and now she finds herself unemployed.
Because this was so sudden, she had no time to prepare for
the fact that in an instant she would have no income.

My friend has no source of financial help, no family to give her long term support and she is forced to move out of her rental house and  temporarily into a friend's townhome.  To add to it, she just had to euthanize her 15 year old Lab.

So I am asking for help for this friend, she has a very old car which she was told would need a new clutch at any time, to the tune of $2000. She also has some medical issues and in order to continue with her medical care, she will have to pay out of pocket until she can find work. Her health insurance ends on June 30th, and she is in the middle of physical therapy.

She is going to apply for unemployment, and try to find another job,  but with the cost of health insurance and the cost of even frugal living, I think it's overwhelming and quite frankly, I don't see how she will manage. Anything we can raise for her would be a blessing. 

She is a very kind and caring woman and really could use some help.  She actually had two jobs to make ends meet, the second job was cleaning a two story antique business on Sundays, but with her knees and back acting up, her doctor made her take 3 weeks off to rest.  We're hoping she can resume  that job soon.

Thank you for any help you can offer.
