Parking lot prayers

It's getting harder and harder to focus, sleep is becoming nearly impossible because my heart is breaking thinking about this situation. Someone out there in Tuscon, Arizona in the 100 degree heat of the day and 89 degree heat of the night, there is a single mom trying to homeschool her special needs child while living in a car in a Walmart parking lot. I can barely type that without crying.
If they were her in Memphis I would round up a crew and sweep them up in a heart beat; but they're not, they're in Arizona and I'm praying to God to pull off a tiny miracle for them.
Her name is Julie and she is living in her car with her two boys and they're service dog. Her youngest son (13) has a mental disability and has to have 24 hour surveillance as well as his trained dog.
The family shelters are overcrowded and they are being forced to live in their car in a Walmart parking lot.
The night temperature there is 89 degrees and they are barely sleeping , covered in their own sweat.
They have government housing coming but it will be a month before it arrives. Julie has cried out and God has laid it on my heart to try to do something to help them.
We have been contacting extended stays and air bnb hosts to find a place for them in Tuscon. So this gofundme is to raise enough money to pay for a to stay for them just for one month to hold them over. The oldest son is looking for work, but without an address that can be very difficult if not impossible.
Her youngest son needs constant attention and so Julie and the oldest son have to devote most of their time to keeping him stable. I can't imagine how stressful this is for her. So I'm reaching out for anyone who thinks they could help relieve some of this burden from her.
If anyone would like to help them with food, clothing or hygiene products, they are living in a Walmart parking lot and would benefit greatly from a Walmart e gift card. Those can be emailed to [email redacted] and we'll make sure they get them.
If there's any encouraging videos or photos you'd like to make them we'll happily send those too. They really need their spirits lifted.

If you have any care packages you'd like to send them they can be addressed to:

Primavera Homeless Services at 702 S 6th Ave,
Tucson, AZ 85701

Just put a note inside the package that it's for Julie.

I can't thank you all enough for everything you've done to help with all the miracles we've seen through Chauncy's Chance. My prayer is that God will use this small miracle in mighty ways to have a huge impact for His kingdom. Thank you all so much!
