Struggling mom needs help with first and last. Working, pregnant with a toddler and homeless. Need help with first and last and can pay back with payment plans. I am up against a wall life is too tiring. Please someone help!!!

My life has gone downhill since we took a quick trip up to maine with my 2y/o and a friends 3 y/o our car broke down on a dark empty highway and triple a couldn't even find a tow truck to get us, it was a cold night we didnt have enough diapers, money or food. The tow truck  who found us paid for our  hotel. Our car brokedown from a recall from toyota for dissipating oil but we didnt know about the  recall and of course the billion dollar company denied correlation. It took 7hours to get home. This was the beginning of our downfall. My boyfriend then lost his job because  he did uber, limousine service  and delivery. I got a job at the ice cream shop down the street and was able to walk there, all our  taxes went to back payment on rent, except for $500 the state withheld that we havent got back or we would of had a clean slate to start over with, we couldnt afford rent so moved to my moms 1bedroom aparmtment because she was moving in with friends. She lived in another town so i had to lose my job. Her neighbors moved into the  apartment under us and got the  landlord to kick us out over stuff they were making up,  the landlord was surprised how clean and great we left the apartment because clearly they said we were destroying his house when we were just trying to stay there to saveaa to get us a bigger place. We had to move again and my husband lost yet another job because of this repeated cycle. Everytime we find hope something knocks us down. I finally got a job in Worcester again and refuse to start over again, we were staying at a hotel with all the. Money we saved while waiting for this apartment we had lined up, but the previous tenants refused to move out so the landlord had to go to housing court that was taking way longer than expected. So our  last option we turn to the state, they kept us in the office for 3 days while waiting to place us, people get placed before us who came in after us and all got placed in the same area, the state sent us 52 miles away from our family, my job, and our doctors with no transportation. They placed us Dec 23 so we couldnt even get ahold of anyone because of the holiday vacation, no one returns our phone calls, we put in an appeal and still just left out to  dry. Which was even more stress on us, my mom let us borrow her car to the point she is losing her hair from the stress. I should of had a mental breakdown already and surprised how well i am holding it together for my family. The state who is by law suppose to help us but they literally laugh in your face when you say you just need help getting on your feet, they say in order to get help you need to not work and stay under the poverty line. I can't live like that. I need a place for my family, i am not looking for a handout or a free ride, im literally stuck and asking for help. I dont have family that can help we grew up poor and im not trying to stay poor i have been  working  since  I was 16 years old. I also wasnt trying to get pregnant while homeless i found out after waking up with morning sickness our first morning in the hotel. Life happens sometimes I get that but it literally has been a domino affect of bad luck for the last 2 years I've lost all hope in humanity, life and all happiness.
