From car to home-Family needs help

My dear friend from high school has fallen on very hard times.  She and other family members have exhausted all possibilities and as of today, are living in a car. She has been in touch with shelters and so far none can help.
She worked hard like all of us, and as a single mom, raised a beautiful daughter.  She was laid off a few years ago and has been struggling ever since to find work and is dealing with medical challenges. She is a grandparent like many of you, and is devoted heart and soul to her family. She is too proud to ask for help, so I'm asking for her.  She and her family desperately need safe shelter in the short term, and enough money to be able to rent a place in the near-future, which means having enough for a deposit and rent. If you can give any amount, please know that it would be appreciated many times over.  Thank you very much.
