It's kind of you to try to help your friend. There is help available. There are several low-income housing assistance programs. There's more information on that here:

You can reach that office by phone:(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr />
She may also be eligible for food stamps. You can read more here:

Or, she can apply at this office:

4545 Delta Fair Boulevard, Antioch(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr />
You can read more about the health care programs for low income persons on this site:

What would be best for your friend would be to get a social worker who could coordinate all the services she needs. When she applies for food stamps (or you can call the food stamp office), the staff there will be able to refer her to the appropriate office to try to arrange a worker.
