Family in need

This year has been an especially hard here for a family. Our son Elijah has had two psychiatric inpatient stays and the second one was the one that hit us the hardest. Our son has conduct disorder which makes him a threat to our family and himself. However without the resources here in Mohave County we've had to travel to find him support and help and in the process our family has suffered due to his extreme behaviors. I had to quit work to take care of him full-time and once my husband had went to work to take care of our family so I could stay home with Elijah Elijah's behaviors resulted in his father having an accident with his arm going through a window and almost dying. Our source of income was very limited at this point because he was off of work and unemployment only pays $240 a week on top of our rent bills and car payment. Most recently Elijah had an incident where he lied about his father because he was upset that his dad had the school take his recess away to do his work and his father was taken to jail and we are now fighting that case as well. In the process DCS has now become involved in our lives to help us with the Elijah and Elijah will be going to a group home or a Therapeutic Foster Care Home in order to support our family and him in thriving environments. However we are now financially strapped because his father cannot work due to his injury and I am going to have to go back to work again however we are behind I need support and keeping up on our bills for the next 2 months so we are asking for support are possible donations so that we are able to do this while we are going through the transition of having Elijah out of our home and supporting our family at the same time. Prayers are also welcomed.
