Help Susan get back on her feet

Last October I had a stroke. And it was pretty incopasitating in that everything in my life changed at that one moment. I lost my job, my home and the love of my life all in one fell swoop. So now I am living with my sister's family until July 1 and then I am homeless.  You might wonder how  I could go from successful business owner to homeless in a few short months, but that is the power of a stroke. I at least have my health now. And a strong will to survive! But I need help. I am at a point where I can no longer stay with my sister's family and I need a place to live. I also need transportation which is something I do not have and Uber while convenient is bankrupting me. Just to get to and from work and doctors appointments is over $200 per week.  I am working as a deli clerk at Wholefoods but that is an entry level job and one that I am not very good at. I am trying very hard to find another position one that is more inline with what I can do, both physically and mentally. but it is difficult and my ability to look is also drawing to a close with July 1 - I will no longer have computer access once I move out of my sister's house. 

So that is where I am at: 53 and pretty much broken but not defeated . I need some assistance. And anyone who knows me knows how hard it is for me to ask for that. But that is it - I need help. Please help me get back on my feet.
Thank you!
