HELP for immigration expenses

Some of you know but many don't, but I have been going through immigration proceedings for many years now. My family is from Peru but I have lived here since I was a child in grade school. When I was old enough to start this process, I did. BUT, Immigration is VERY unpredictable when it comes to time frames. My case started in 2007 and due to unforseen circumstances, didn't go as we had hoped. I was given a court date in 2012 of MARCH 2019. It was very far off and we thought we had plenty of time to prepare, touching base with the attorney yearly. There was a possibility it could be moved up to the end of 2018. My wife decided to randomly call a few weeks ago and found out that has suddenly been moved up to September 8, 2017. We weren't prepared for that news in any way shape or form. Our entire world was flipped upside down as we prepare to fight for a chance to stay in this county to be a husband and father to my 2 small kids. We aren't financially prepared for the expenses we are about to incur and as a result are looking for any help we can get from our friends and family. We both work full time, myself as a tile installer and my wife as a teacher. We both take on side work, my wife with her personalization company and I pick up side jobs for extra money to pay for the expenses of day to day life. America is all I know and I am proud to be a contributer to society. 

We don't have alot of extra money, especially with having two small kids in day care, so our funds are extremely limited.  We do not get any assistance from the state or government, we pay our taxes yearly and are all around hard working people just looking for a little bit of help. Normally I would never reach out for financial help, but our timeline is unrealistically short and I don't want to make things even more difficult financially for my family than they already are. All money collected will go to pay for my attorney and immigration expenses.
