Single Mother in need of help

I am a single mother struggling and battling domestic violence and going through programs at the moment. I currently fighting custody, where I lost my child through domestic violence.  My mother is taking care of my child for the time being.  I had to move back in SEPTEMBER 2020 immediately because my ex boyfriend was stalking me. I have an order of protection and everything. I have a private address due to this and changed my number due to him contacting me. I am raising money towards my bills that I am currently behind. Between my rent  $1000 monthly with heat included (my landlord has been asking for money and we agreed to pay weekly $250 but I have been struggling to even get this money each week),  my car payment is behind (under $2000), car insurance in only behind $300, RGE bill I owe from previously and current $115, kohls charge is closed due to no payment and owe $405. I have been fighting my unemployment case since April 2020, still have not received any pandemic benefits since then.  As gas prices rise and I travel to see my son through out the week. I get assistance with food but other than that I have been at my lowest in my life.  I am in rehab and mental health. I have been clean, 3 months in programs and been battling severe anxiety/ PTSD and minor depression.  The DHS of NYS has me exempt from working and During my free time, I have been reaching out to multiple resources to help me out. I try to babysit during the times I don't have appointments or seeing my son after he's out of school.  Anything will help my situation, Times are really really tough! I am not giving  up but this is the hardest time I've been in. I have been doing my best everyday. Thank you!!!
