My friend, near Atlanta, GA, is nearly blind with cataracts in both eyes. She is jobless. Her house is in foreclosure, and I have just discovered that it will go up for sale on the 4th. She's completely isolated, and has no transportation. Family is not a viable resource.

Everything indicates she's in a deep depression. She's been unable to help herself for a while now, and I have no idea what to do. I live 2,000 miles away, and don't have financial means to help.
I am thinking she could sell the contents of her house for some money, but she needs help with that.
She needs assistance. She needs somewhere to live. She needs surgery, so that she can get a job.
What resources and agencies can help a person who cannot help herself right now?
