Restoration Project

I have an adult son age 34, that I've been taking care of for many years that has Paranoid Schizophrenia as well as a Major Depressive Disorder. The medication he has been on for years has lost its full effect on him. He will progressively get worse as he ages. I have been working on getting him into some special housing that is better equipped to deal with people that have his condition, but I've been working on it this whole year so far. In the meantime he's slowly but surely destroying my home. He broken up almost all of my doors, half my windows, my furniture, my outlets, the sheet rock in his room, my dishes, and my flooring from dumping stuff on it. He believes that dumping certain fluids on the floor help him from being contaminated by the electricity. The image I posted is a plug in outlet in his room that he ccx ripped out and shoved a spoon into for protection. Anyway, I'm going to have to restore my home to a safe and functional condition once he is taken to a different place to live. It does no good to do anything until he's moved out and in the meantime he continues to destroy more of my home on a daily basis. It's so bad that my home insurance carrier won't even renew my policy until I get the house back in good shape, so if he starts a fire I'm screwed. If that happens everything I've worked to build so I can retire someday will be lost. I'm in poor orthopedic health and I can't repair anything on my own. Any help that anyone can send my way would be so helpful. I Love my son and only want what's best for him, whichbis why I haven't just evicted him like law enforcement wanted me to do. I decided to just tough it out until I could just get him something in place long term and that would better for him as I know I won't live forever. However, in the meantime my home is falling down around me and my grandchildren live with me too so they are suffering through this difficult time right along with me. One of my other children suggested I try this Go Fund Me and I figured it can't hurt. I was reluctant because I asked him why would anyone want to help me when there's lots of folks that need help right now the same as I do. He told me to just try, so i am. Thank you for reading my story and God Bless you all that help people in need every day you are truly Angel's.
