Vaughn Family Help

So i never thought I would be doing this. I'm not sure how much different my sad story varies from everyone else's.  I know and believe in my lord and Savior. He has always provided for me and my family,  most of the time right before i felt like giving up. 
My story starts many many years ago. I have definitely been through some great times and some awful times. Life has been more of a struggle lately.  I lost my mom, my backbone,  my best friend June 2013. She may have not had a lot to give but she would give everything she had to make sure i was taken care of. Her passng suddenly didn't give me much time to process the whole situation before i had to jump into the roll of taking over all of the bills. My mom had prepared me for life but not life without her. Every day is a struggle.  I have a husband, who got laid off the day before Christmas Eve, but is currently looking for employment and I have 3 wonderful children. I am a full time employee hoping to get promoted into a different position in the clinic. So i dont sit around waiting for things to get handed to me.  
I never realized how much my mom helped until we have had to do things without her; not only financially but emotionally.  Paying the mortgage,  insurance,  electricity,  water and every day living necessities adds up very quickly especially for a family of 5.  Living paycheck to paycheck can only work for so long until something breaks and you dont have that extra savings to help you out.  The ac/heater isn't working.  I had it serviced a few days ago and it worked for 2 days but now they are saying its something else. My fence is falling apart. The civic association frowns and fines against that. My car barely fits all of us in it but that is the least of its problem.  It needs a tune up and transmission mounts. The frame to Davids truck is bent due from a wreck that happened months ago that wasn't his fault. My kids are my number one priority. Anything they need comes before my needs. My daughter is in need of braces and a spacer. The way some of her bottom teeth are, they are wearing down her top teeth.
And just to top off everything today,  the day after Christmas, someone managed to hack into my bank account and spend every dime that was our bill money. I spoke with the bank and they assured me the money will be back into my account in 10 business days, if they decided in my favor. So in the mean time, am i supposed to buy food and pay my bills with my good looks?
