A spousal K-3 visa would allow him to come to the US while waiting and obtain work authorization as well. It's not the fastest process, but it may help in your situation. I've attached a link to the State Department page on K visas. I suggest using an attorney to avoid delays.

Not sure how your husband entered the US. If he entered legally, he can probably apply for Adjustment of Status (form I-485) and employment authorization (form I-765). This is if you are currently in the US. It's also not clear where you are when you say "I must return home."
This makes me think you may be abroad.

It sounds like the packet might have been prepared incorrectly. With a US citizen spouse petitioner, the immigrant can apply for a green card, work permit, and advance parole travel document simultaneously here in the United States, and in general, not have to depart the United States. I would consult with an immigration lawyer immediately to get this fixed.
