Help Ellen & Her Boys

My Sister Ellen, who is my teacher, my protector, and my best friend has suffered from anxiety, depression and ADHD her entire life. Her condition leaves her unable to work and dependent on incredibly small child support payments.

She is a recently single Mom who has been fighting to get aid from a system that is designed to help her, but has hit a brick wall at every turn and struggles to continue after each set-back. 

Ellen is the most selfless person I know. She's always ready to help those around her and asks for nothing in return, so I am standing up and asking for her. 

In her current situation;
 -The floor and the roof of her home are in dire need of repair.

 -She has no vehicle to get groceries, medications, transport her kids, or get herself to the doctor.

 -Her utilities are being shut off one by one, and power is expected be disconnected today (8/11/14)

 -Her cell phone has been disconnected leaving her unable to coordinate aid.

 -The land she resides on is rented and an eviction notice is imminent. 

-She is going through a divorce and has been left with a mountain of bills that were left in her name. 

 -She is having to look for new homes for the family pets.

I don't want her to give up but I know she's reaching that point. Anything you can do to help her out of this situation would be greatly appreciated.
