Help Aiden get the mental healthcare he needs.

Donation protected
Please meet our son, Aiden. He is intelligent, creative and can be gentle. He is lost in his life and is at risk of losing what most children his age take for granted, the pleasures of being a kid. At only 14 years old, he has incurred a list of infractions that have set his feet on a path he doesn’t understand will leave him with few choices at a certain point.

We want to get him help, we love him so much but we do not have the skills to help him out of the dark place he most certainly is heading.

We know that we have some part in this, most certainly. We are his parents. But the love we have for him, our desire to see him thrive has not helped him in the way he needs.

Currently, he is in a behavioral health center and we are working at getting him into residential treatment which is very costly. Typical expenses are $500/day with 2 months due up front at a cost of $30,000. Because it’s a 6-9 month program, it could end up costing us $60,000-110,000. 

We will be happy with whatever assistance we can get and whatever you feel comfortable giving. We also want you to know that if insurance does eventually come through to cover the costs, all donations will be refunded minus the site fees.

Please help us help our family.
