I need advice

So I’m currently waiting on financial help for daycare for my kids. I work at the daycare my kids go to, and the money for payment is coming out of my check. I owe over $1000 and the financial help, when it comes, will cover the balance, but it’s been in the process of going through for almost 3 months! I stress myself out on the daily to bring home NO money, I’m losing time with my kids to take care of other peoples’ kids, all for nothing. I’m literally paying to work. Do you think I should just take off until it goes through or endure it for a few more weeks?
