Wow, you do have a difficult problem on your hands, also an ethical one.

The cat may be just too feral to socialize in the house properly. Think carefully on this issue and decide if you would rather treat her as a feral under the spay/innoculate/release guidelines. If you do, then talk to your vet about who in the area would spay a feral. Then see if you can get a humane trap and capture her and get her to that vet for a spay. Be sure to have her ear notched as a feral, then release her and hope for the best.

It is sad, but providing her with food and some sort of outdoor shelter after having her spayed may be the best option for you and her. And if she just cannot socialize or adjust to an indoor life, at least you've done what you can for her. Some cats just don't adjust.

Hopefully someone else will be able to help you more.
