Stressed out!! EDIT

I'm so stressed out. I'm newly single and trying to do things on my own. I get paid 9hr and work 40-55 a week. My rent alone is 1040 a month its what is cheapbaround here. I'd move but you have to pay any fees before any other place will rent to you. So coming up with all that is a lot more then my rent.
Anyways, this month I am 40 short and if I don't give it to them before tomorrow then it will be off to court and I'll need 250 more. I have asked everyone I know and they are all tight on money too. I can't take out any loans and I've already gotten help from the church that helps my area. I'm out of ideas. I don't have anything really worth any value that would even sell quick enough.
I applied for food stamps and I don't qualify even though I don't even make enough to pay rent. She told me to not bother with TANF or leap I won't qualify. I can only make1250 before taxes to qualify I make 1300-1400 before takes and 1000 after.

Sorry I had to vent. Oh and if I end up homeless I have no where to go except a hotel for maybe a fee nights a week

Edit: I do not smoke cigarettes I smoke weed which I get for free from a friend who grows it
How can I get a second job I work 5am till 4-6pm I'm about to be management which will put me at working 60-80 a week. I can't find a new place until I pay off this one then I'd have to pay for a new place which most require to either pay three months advance or make 3 times the amount of rent. I've looked around nothing is much cheaper then my place. I live in what is considered the lower grade ghetto of my area. Its not cheap around here.

Not here. You have to drive 50 miles one way to donate and you get about $30. If you're lucky you aren't paying out for the gas to drive to it

I have 2 kids but they live with their father because 3 years ago I ended up living on the streets.

The closest one to me is the same distance and they pay 45 which yes is what I need but I don't drive so using the buss would take some money.

I'd try homeless shelters for a while. Save up money and see about a cheaper place or moving in with a friend.

Maybe you need a place with a roommate, so you can split costs. Minimum wage was not designed to live on. Where do you live?
