How can I get free legal help for my mentally ill sister who is in thousands of debt?

Question Details:

My sister has a mental illness and I am her conservator. I am trying to handle her expenses but where do I begin? They are totalling $15,000. She is scheduled to go to court on 4/1 for a credit card charge. She receives disability and has not worked for the past 2 years due to her illness. I need to find an attorney that is willing to work pro bono. I have exhausted my means trying to keep my sister off the street. Please me or let me know who might be able to help me.
