Default Leaking house on slab NIGHTMARE

Here's my situation: I am in the process of remodeling a downstairs room that was filled with junk and has flooded in the past. When i had everything cleared out of the room it started raining and i noticed water seeping inside through a crack where the wall meets the floor. The next day i went to the hardware store and was told my soil level outside the house was to high and I would have to lower it and slope it away from the house. I went to do that and as i was digging came across something unusual...a concrete chunk that looks to be part of the slab sticks out about half a foot from the house and i cant break through it. I need to stop the water from seeping into the house and prevent a draft from coming into the house. I am on a tight budget and I would REALLY appreciate some advice. Thanks.

Here are pictures
