Making Dreams Come True

This is my Nephew. His name is Brandon and he's currently living in Florida.  Brandon was raised by my Mother, Linda, the best Mom anyone could ask for. He has a younger brother named Josh who also lives in Florida and was raised by my Mother. My Mom eventually adopted them when my sister, their mom, basically just walked out them. Their dad wasn't all that great either. They grew up happy, healthy and loved.
    Last year, everything changed. It was the worst year in our entire lives.  January 22, 1956 is my Dad's birthday, January 22, 2019 is the day my Dad got his wings. It was such an emotional roller coaster for my Mom. My nephews tried everything they could to console her but she was just so sad. Four months later,  on May 25, 2019 my nephew, Josh came home to find our Mom unresponsive. She was already gone just 2 weeks before her birthday on June 8th. Losing both our parents in such a short period of time ripped us apart. 
     I have 2 sisters that also live in Florida. One being their mom, the other being the one that made lots of promises.  They wanted to stay in Florida because that's all they knew, who could blame them. My oldest sister owned a few rental properties that she agreed to letting the boys live there so they wouldn't be homeless. We wanted to keep our Mom's house but it just wasn't possible. For a while everything seemed to be going good.....as good as it could be.
    My oldest sister made so many promises to the boys and then basically turned her back on them. My other sister, their mom won't do anything to help them. My sister decided to sell the house she was letting them live in but didn't tell anyone she was selling it. A few days before they closed on the house she decided then to tell Brandon they had 10 days to pack up, get out and find another place to stay. She didn't offer to let them stay with her nor did their own mom. She had the electricity shut off giving them no way to cook, clean or shower. They were stuck living there with no electricity.  Now they're out on the street.
     Brandon has gone days at a time without eating anything and sleeps just about anywhere he can lay his head down. I am trying so hard to get them moved to Kentucky where I live. They will ALWAYS have a place to go and food to eat. It breaks my heart that I can't get them up here any faster. I have saved and saved and saved. I've been sending them every penny I make some weeks just so they won't starve. He's been saving so much of what I've sent him so he can make it up here. Please help me get my nephews home to me! It's been a whirlwind of emotions having to go through what they're going through and just a year after we lost our parents. 
     I have a place for them to live and jobs for them when they get here. The problem we're facing is the cost to get them here. I have called several places for help. I called the moving truck company to try to get a discount, I've called DCBS and 211. No one is willing or able to help me help these kids get off the streets.  They need warm clothes and shoes. They need to pay the storage up so they can get their belongings, rent a truck, first last and security deposit, utility deposit, a little extra for groceries and necessities. We figured $5,000-$10,000 to get their stuff from storage, get them here and into their place (along with everything else listed) I have done everything in my power to come up with the money but I'm still short. I'm asking that you please help me help my nephews get up here to Kentucky with me and off the streets.

Thank you for taking the time to read this!
