Maybe just say no ? It's admirable to help people in one's CLOSE family to get started, but not to sponsor them for life, so that they don't take proper responsibility for their own life. You can try to live within your own means, and to adjust to tough periods - but someone being sponsored isn't really motivated to do so.
The family has no right whatever to REFUSE to contribute financially or to move out. And surely as there's more than one of them, there should be several salaries available to pay towards the costs. They're being greedy and selfish.
It is YOUR house, and obviously you need personal financial and legal advice about the practicality of evicting the leeches. If you can get rid of them, and put in a paying tenant, that would help ; or selling it on your own, then find out how to do that.
You could give them some months notice to find an alternative. As you say, it's not your fault if they chose to spend everything they earned and to make no savings.
