Help for rent

I never thought that I would have to be doing this but it really has come to this point. My life on social media is incredibly skewed and mostly due to how I want other people to view me and also help my own psyche. I won’t say I have had a hard life, but these past few years it definitely has been really rough. This is incredibly uncomfortable for me, and I rather not share my personal life this vividly, but I have no other choice. 

I am unable to go into detail due to legal reasons, but my parents have divorced and my mom was unfairly treated during the divorce process by her previous attorney and the court. Long story short, my mom and I are currently unable to pay rent or bills due to the unfair ruling of the divorce between my mom and my father. My father has also recently blocked me after promising to help pay for some things. I am 19 years old and work as much as I can whilst being a full time student but I am unable to help the way that I wish I could. My mom has also secured herself a job position, but is unable to start until they process her security clearance. Due to COVID-19, it has been very difficult for her to find a job that would pay enough to support us and the apartment we live in. My mom was with my dad for almost twenty years and was there before he even went to college. The court ruled that she would recieve nothing from the divorce. For the past few months, my grandma from my moms side has been sending us money to help pay for rent from her savings fund.   I never thought my mom and I would ever be in this position. I have held back from doing this in hopes the courts would make fair decisions, but the court that their divorce was sent to, is known to have incredibly unfair judges who are more interested in doing things more quickly rather than showing justice and fairness to the ones who deserve it.  My mom is such a brave and strong woman but she has been struggling so hard. I just want to lift some weight off her shoulders for a brief amount of time before she begins her job (which we do not know when that will be). Anything would help right now, and all of this will be going to food, bills, rent and etc. This would help us so much and relieve some stress off of our shoulders.Thank you.
