I'm a single parent of 2 special needs adults. How can I make more money to make ends meet each month?

I make $27800 at my job a year & my children's SSI payments are $18109 a year. Right now with all my bills, I'm barely making ends meet. My credit is terrible from a past bankrupcy, I need help now so I don't have to sell my home. I'm really at my wits end.
