Finding a job without references

I need a little guidence if anyone can help.

I'm looking for another job because my last one was pretty much a scam. I don't have any references to use, or at least good ones. The longest job I've held was cleaning houses for 11 months and had to quit after my daycare provider decided she was done doing that. The company knew about all of that. How did any of you find employment without using refs?

will anyone you worked for in the housecleaning position provide references?

do you have anyone you've dealt with in any professional manner at all (not necessarily working for them) who would provide references?

I had to start over with references a while back.  Typically I give someone I worked with, a good friend who has heads up I'm using her as a reference, and my step dad who has a different last name but I have done work for him (for free).

Most of them no longer worked there and I've tried finding them on fb but no luck.

It's been the same issue here.
