Help make garnishment easier

We've received a wage-garnishment order from the State of California for my child's caregiver for an unpaid tax debt. What, if anything, can we do to help her?

The amount they are asking us to withhold (25%, the total debt is $1000) will cause significant hardship for her family; she's a single mom with 3 kids. She's here legally but not a native English speaker and her math skills aren't great.
She lives in Oakland and we live in San Francisco and are hoping that there's something we can do rather than just referring her somewhere for assistance or advice.
