What sort of training program is free and will have me gainfully employed by this summer?

I am a full time single mother of 3. Beginning this summer I will have babysitting that will allow me to work full time for the first time in years. Right now I am very poor. I also have health issues that make working in stressful environments that use a lot of chemicals (including air freshener and cleaning fluids) difficult.
Also, I'm slowly going blind (I can see well enough to do most things but can no longer trust myself with details that would be needed to return to pharmacy).
Things I have done:
Assistant to the owner of a music booking agency
Smoothie girl at a gym
People love me. I am great to work with. I work hard and always go the extra mile.
I need a job that will still give me time with my children while allowing me to make enough money to support them. Healthcare (including dental), would be amazing.
What should I train for? What should I do? My only interests have to do with music, writing and crochet. Not much money potential there, as I have no college degree.
