Help me get Aliyah on her feet

I meet people everywhere.  I met Aliyah a few weeks ago and we just started talking. I could tell she was struggling and it didn't take long for her story to tumble out. She had been in an abusive relationship for 13 years. Her husband finally went too far and put her in a coma for nearly a month. Her children were taken away and given to her parents on a safety plan. She is half mexican half arab and her father is a muslim who is not happy she has turned to Christianity. But they are still speaking. She recently had an apartment inspection that passed and her children are going to be returning on Monday. She was smart about her own finances while she was working and paid off her apartment rent until December with last years tax returns. But while she was in the hospital and a few months after she was unable to keep up with the utility bills of nearly 300 per month. Her apartment is not the best run in the world and the manager sees no reason to replace very old units that can just be filled with freon until it leaks out again. Aliyah has 6 kids. And no lights at the moment. She had an interview two days ago and got the job at a daycare in the medical center. She will be assistant to the director and this will pay her bills when she finally starts working and of course gets a paycheck. But her lights were turned off today. And this amount of money is overwhelming. It will take 1005 to turn the lights back on. She is out of extensions and CPS is not wanting to be compassionate. Life gets messy. We all deal with stuff. Anything and everything you could offer will be very much appreciated. Blessed Love and Peace.
