If you have a heart, you will try to help me!

I got a 2000 cougar. Last night the water pump belt broke and my car overheated.. the pressure release valve?? let all the pressure in the radiator out.. Now I have the belt fixed and antifreeze still spews out.

What can I do to fix this?

PLEASE HELP ME! I am currently going to college and I have no other way to get there.

How long was the belt broken before the engine was shutdown? If it was run for awhile, it may have a blown head gasket. Do you fill the radiator and run it until it gets hot and then it dumps the coolant or does it shoot out as soon as the engine is running, even cold?
