Please help my son and I

Hello all.  My name is Heather and I am a single mother of a special needs child.  I work full time as a secretary at a local hopital and am generally able to keep things paid as well as help others in need without state assistance or child support (I will never see a penny).  But I have had a few medical problems that have put me behind on my rent and my car payment and I have been given warning of impending eviction and being default on my car note.  It is hard for me to ask for help like this but I have exhausted every avenue I can think of.  My rent is past due, I owe 2 months which equals $1100.  And my car note needs to be paid $500 so it is not defaulted by the 5th of August.  If anyone is willing to help with any of this (a dollar from 1700 people would work) I would really appreciate it.  Thank you for taking the time to read this.  Any help I recieve I plan to pay it forward when I am able to do so.

My name is Heather.  I am a 31-year-old single mother of a 9-year-old special needs son.  I work full time as a Unit Secretary in a local hospital.  My son and I have lived on our own since he was 3 months old.  His father was abusive to me and we do not have contact with him whatsoever as he is now a level 3 sex offender.  We get by on the income that I make but it is from paycheck to paycheck.  We don't have a savings, nor do we get to go on vacations.  In some ways I think it's good for him to experience the struggles of life.  There are too many children who have everything handed to them and they don't see the value of it.  I am planning to go back to school soon and get my BA in Business (I have my AA right now) but I need to have surgery first.  According to the state I make more than enough money so I don't qualify for any assistance.  If it weren't for family we would barely have enough for food.  Despite all this I am an optimistic person and I try to help others as much as I can (there will always be someone worse off then me).  Hard times are frequent in our house but we still know how to laugh and enjoy our time together.
