Moving For My Special Needs Son

Hello everyone,
My name is Channah Feiga. I am a single mom to a great 16 year old kid with special needs. My son was born in Israel and lived there all his life.
5 months ago we had to move to the States so that I could have shoulder surgery on my only working arm. I couldn't have it done in Israel because i needed full time care which I couldn't afford to get there and in the States I have family.
Since we arrived I have tried tirelessly to get my son into a Jewish program that met his needs. Since I'm poor it has been impossible. Tuitions here are insane and these schools donot care if you can not pay. Either pay up or your kid is not welcome.
In addition, my son is lonely. He has become depressed, distant and disengaged. Because he is not in a program he hasn't been able to make friends. 
I have made the tough decision to forfeit my future surgeries for my son's well being and move back home to Israel, where he can go to school, and be with his friends.
This is where things get tricky. My salary doesn't even cover my basic monthly expenses so now the added expense of moving back to Israel is quite frightening, but it must be done.
I'm reaching out to everyone and anyone now right before Rosh Chodesh Adar, begging you, Plese help me save my son and bring him home to Israel. Help me save him from a future of depression, lonliness, no education and no future. 
We need your help. Please send us your maaser, or you matanos l'evyonim. We can't do it without your help.
You should all be bentched with only mazal, brocha, nachas and good health.
