U.S Army Veteran victim of scam

Hello everyone.
My name is Lizzette. Some of you may know me, and some of you don't. That's okay. I am praying that as you read this, those that are able, will please help me. If the roles were reversed, I would help in any way I can, financially and prayerfully.
A little about me. I am from Massachusetts and am very family oriented. I live at home with my mother, 2 sisters, and brother. We dont have much but at the end of the day, God provides us with what we need. I have served in the United States Army and am proud to have been given the opportunity to serve my family and country with my life. I would have gladly given my life in order to protect those I love.
My bank account was taken advantage of by a gentleman I was suppose to work with on a fashion shoot. The money was to be used for the wardrobe but instead, he took advantage of me and provided me with false checks, that after a week, my bank refuted. 
I have absolutely no money now and am in the red, negative, with my account $5000(which will continue to go up due to overdraft fees). I work very hard and would never even think of doing something like this to another human being. I have read stories about these things happening but thought I was smart enough to see it if it ever came my way. I'm always one to help people, ask anyone that knows me. Whether it be money, a ride somewhere, I dont hesitate to help. That's what God would want, and I live my life that way. 
I never ask for money, but this is way over my head.. if you have room in your budget, please help me. No amount is too small. Most of all, I need prayer. There are so many bills coming up (rent, insurance, cell phone that I use for work as a driver) and I dont know how I'm going to pay any of them. 
I appreciate any help, in any form.
God bless you all and I pray this never happens to anyone reading this.
