Single mom with ASD son

Donation protected
Hey, my name is Tara and to preface this I would not be doing this except that I am living a unsustainable existence with no job. My family has passed, brother and sister have their own lives, as they should. I have not been able to work since May 2022(job I loved and had been at 14 years) because there was an extreme incident at family member's home who was sitting for my son. I had to make a decision for my son and I. It ended up it was an untenable situation, and I explored other options. My son lives with me and has special needs. He is low functioning ASD,non-verbal(has speech device),ADHD, food issues and now serious aggression issues at times. Needless to say I have checked into any help available but it does not work for us. I have gone through my savings this past year. I have work lined up when school starts as long as he attends! My son refused school violently for last month of 5th grade. I am being as transparent as possible, and this is truly hard for me. My son is my responsibility and my life 24/7. He shattered his iPad, and I can't replace it. He's been destroying clothes by ripping them so I have to go to thrift stores once a week. He doesn't understand why we can't get fast food/restaurants and he gets combative due to that.I truly feel if I can get some financial stability it will cut down on my anxiety/fear of eviction. My sweet friend said I should explain what acronym ASD stands for- autism spectrum disorder. He was diagnosed early at 22 months.
