Your interests are mostly conflicting. First you say you want a software career where payment is involved so that you can support the family. You then say your intestests are to work in the open source community. There are exceptions, but mostly, the open source community doesn't have funds for 9-5 type employment.

Do you have any background now that you could apply to a target application? The open source community is more about results than formal education. If you can contribute and they like your code, then you have a chance of becoming a formal contributing member of a team.
