In addition I have read online that the 2008 model of Focus has this problem and there is nothing that I can do about it. I do not have a ton of money to throw at the problem. I really need this car to last me until its at least paid off.

Hello, the most common issue is a problem with the ignition switch housing on the steering column. The ignition tumbler sits inside the housing. The housing wears and will not allow the vehicle to crank unless you push in on the ignition key. If you replace the steering column lock module this will resolve your concern.
