37 weeks and almost homeless!

I am 37 weeks pregnant with my third child. This whole pregnancy has been so stressful, I've had no time to be happy or excited about it. My husband walked out on us and now I'm with our twin 2 year old boys and a girl on the way. I am staying with a friend and her roommate, I've been here since January. I am grateful to have had a place to stay for this long but I will not be able to stay once the baby comes. I have applied for jobs, housing, child support, and am currently in a mental health program. I have been working on this all along but with no fruits from my efforts yet. I'm told the soonest I will have a place to live is the end of August. I'm scared, I have at least a month, probably 2 months, that I will be without a home. Any suggestions/support welcome.

I was homeless with my 3rd child at the age of 21, I had no family supports, no friends and no self esteem... i went from refuges and live in parenting programs for almost a year with the 2 girls then when my baby was a few months old I finally managed to get public housing and i lived on social security, Life was very very hard.. once the housing was sorted i went back to school the years went by and life was just plain tough.. we didnt have nice things and most of the time we didnt even have enough food to eat... again i went and studied 10 years later and finally things have worked out ... i now have a career and a nice settled life with every thng i need ... It took time and a lot of hard work but life has been ok for the last ten years.. you can do it ... dont be scared it will all work out and you will be a different person at the end of it all
