Abscessed teeth-On Welfare-what to do?

HI everyone,
That's it!
I have a five year old female cat with badly abscessed teeth that is draining puss out of her eye! I thought she was recovering this morning only to come home and find her like this.
My husband passed away two months ago, I'm now on welfare until i can find a new job and I can't make this months rent.
This is as desperate as it gets (I hope and pray!)
Does anyone know of any grants or foundations that can help someone like us out?
I have heard about the Farley Foundation but all the vets around me are out of funding for this year and I don't know where else to turn to.
Any suggestions are appreciated. She is eating, sort of because she is SO thin but it hurts her I can tell. She needs to be hydrated but the best I can do is eyedroppers of water. I gave her about 200 milligrams of Cipro which is all I have and she seems to be better than she was a few hours ago.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
Anyone may contact me off line at [email removed]
Thanks!!

Ask a vet if you can put you on a monthly plan.
If they know your situation, maybe they will try to accomodate.:fingerscr
