Help for home repairs

In 2018 our family outgrew the 2 bedroom home we were in. It became necessary to find somewhere larger but we had very little money. We found a house we liked and began the process of buying. It was discovered that we didn't have enough money to pay for an inspection, but we expected that any major issues would have been caught during the appraisal, so we (foolishly) waived the inspection.
We have had issues since then of finding bats in the house and water leaking from the bathroom to the basement. As it turns out the house flippers we purchased from took advantage of our financial situation and cut MANY corners. There were gaps in the roof letting in bats and wasps, which destroyed the insulation. As this was a risk to our children's health, we took out a loan to fix the issues and remove the pests. The repairs in that instance cost 7,000.00 and the loan is a major strain. We found out yesterday while replacing the toilet that the entire subfloor in the bathroom is rotted and needing to be replaced. The vanity, shower, and possibly the walls in the shower need to be replaced as well.

With one thing after another causing issues in the home and my family already dependant on foodstamps and tax refunds, we don't have the funds to make the necessary repairs.
Any and all money donated will go to repairing the house, any extra will be set aside for future issues that may come up. 
Thank you for taking the time to read my story, and thank you for any help you choose to give. God bless you all.
