Help us avoid eviction.

I am a single mom with three awesome kids under my roof.  One of those kids recently has been going through a mental health crisis.  I made the decision to  stop working in order to be their 24/7 care provider.  I knew it would have consequences,  but I didn't come to this decision lightly. My child was hospitalized for eight days to save their life a few months ago. However, that hospital stay led to an increase in their anxiety and symptoms. Their recovery has been slow, but they're making progress.  I believe wholeheartedly that staying home with them to oversee their care and stay on top of their appointments has kept them alive. 
Being a caregiver for a loved one with mental health issues is a huge undertaking, and my mental health (I have Major Depressive Disorder as well as generalized anxiety disorder) has been affected as well. Sometimes it feels like I'm drowning trying to save a sinking ship, but I'm keeping on and doing the best I can.  I have been unable to remain employed, but am actively seeking employment. I also have medical costs to cover for my daily antidepressant and anti anxiety medications.  Thankfully, my child's medical costs are fully covered by Medicaid. 
Asking for help is embarrassing and humbling, but I was served eviction papers today.  Thank you in advance for any help. We are indebted to your kindness.
