I was kicked out for being myself

Right before the fall semester, my conservative mother went through my phone and discovered that I am gay from conversations I had with my friends. She decided to throw me out then and there. I had to forfeit my first semester of college because I couldn't pay for both college and a place to stay. I hope to attend UNG in the second semester, but while I have a scholarship that will pay for tuition, I cannot afford books and housing. I'm currently working overnight shifts at a McDonald's in hopes of making enough, but I know that it won't be enough. I'm asking for just a little assistance from people as a last ditch effort to make up the money. I am an AP student with distinction and a straight A student. I live in Georgia, so I was awarded the zell miller scholarship which is what pays for my tuition. The cheapest dorm option they have is about $2,500 and you are required to buy a meal plan which is another$1,500. Additionally, they have mandatory fees such as a housing fee, athletics fee, ect. These range from $65-$250.
