Single mother of 5 just trying to make it.

My family recently moved to Louisiana from Texas because my parents are both in bad health and I wanted to be closer. My little sister found out that her 2 kids dad had been abusing them and she took custody then she lost her home in a hurricane so now they too are living with me.We have been here about 4 months and my husband decided he wanted to be single and left us and went back to Texas. My oldest son still lives in Texas and has his own life but he tries to help financially when he can. My 17 yrs old has taken on the role of dad in trying to help with the kids and working. My sister has very bad epilepsy,migraines and anxiety so she cant work.I have been a stay at home mom for nearly 20 years now so having all this on my shoulders is a load. I am looking for employment, but in the meantime I have a $750 rent, electric,water, trash and 2 cell phones. It's hard watching my kids have to be so grown up and struggle too just to make ends meet. Just a little weight off all our backs just for a minute would mean so much.
