50-Somethings who have to change careers due to death of a spouse

I have younger children, am in my fifties, and have a Bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in sociology.  Finding a job which will allow me back in the market after taking time off to care for my terminally ill husband and then get my children and myself back on our emotional feet has been a challenge.  I would welcome advice, suggestions, anything from anyone so that we don't lose our home.  

Maybe I am just overwhelmed by the sheer number of applications I have filled out with no response.  Can anyone offer a new avenue of thought I have not tried?

Thank you for your help!

I think that age discrimination, work experience and education are working against us!  I got tired of applying for job after job, having great interviews, and no job offers!  Sometimes we have to take matters into our own hands... start your own business, work hard at it, and you will have success!  I recently started my own healthy chocolate business and I'm building a strong foundation for future residuals!  There are tons of network marketing companies out there with products and services for just about every interest.  Minimal investment and minimal monthly overhead make these businesses attractive.  Do the research and find the company, product or service you like and go for it!

Here's the company I joined... http://mxi.myvoffice.com/tamaradavis
