Just brainstorming but:

  1. put the bills in your name if you can
  2. need extra cash, try delivering pizza or bartending THIS weekend, you'd be surprised at the tips
  3. craig's list for selling something
  4. AVOID payday loans, they take about 20-25$ on 100$ borrowed and could spiral further
  5. call the bank for personal installment loan, did this on 1000$ and paid 90 over 12 months to get out of similar situation
  6. call local dhs and hud office
  7. call city hall and find out resources
  8. try medicaid office and workforce commission, many caseworkers deal with this exact thing and may be able to provide emergency assistance
  9. the public school the kids attend have staff too that know of resources
  10. your church, family, friends, coworkers...everyone needs help so you got on here, ask them too and you might just be surprised at what you could do for them too
  11. google personal loan and there is an onslaught of online sites just for this

Above all, don't give up and file a breach of lease contract when you can and get out of that place!
