Need Emergency Eviction Money

My mother Carmen has been living in her apartment in the Bronx for the past 20 years. She pays her rent on time and receives government assistance for her rent due to health problems with her heart that disabled her to work. 

Her landlord decided to evict her so he can basically up the rent (unfortunately gentrification hit home,BX) We have been trying to fight in court for her landlord to give her more time so she can try to save some money and find a new home. Unfortunately we lost that fight. 

I am doing the best I can but its just not enough. My mother is a single parent of 3, she tried her best raising us and I want to be able to help her out as much as I can. 

We basically need money for a security deposit and a brokers fee (all the apartments listed on section 8 are though brokers, go figure). No apartment will take her in unless we have that. It breaks my heart to see my mother let this situation break her down, she needs a break. Anything possible to reach the goal amount will be extrememly grateful and amazing.

Thank you so much for your time.
