In UK, there's an organisation called The National Zakat Foundation. They maybe able to help you out In Sha Allah. They look at your circumstances (they deal with application very quickly) and from the sounds of things I think you may qualify.
Please get in touch with them if you are based in the UK. Here's their website details: http://www.nzf.org.uk/
May Allah Subhanahu wa'tala ease your situation and give you patience. Ameen.
