Default Getting so frustrated! (no work release)

So DH was the breadwinner, and we found out he was going to prison with less than 3 days to prepare, so he left us (myself and my toddler) with very little money, and no income. The judge told us he would get work release.

Well he finally got through the processing camp and is at his main facility, and has been told he won't get work release because his sentence is too short!? I've been crying ever since he told me. We have nearly exhausted our savings.
IT's all so cruel.

I already moved back in with family, that doesn't change the fact that I have no income. :/
I've been looking for a job for over a year. It's getting really frustrating.
