Prayers Needed - Losing funding for my brother

My parents and I just found out that the specialized group home my brother lives in may not continue to accept people from our state. My brother has Prader Willi syndrome and has lived in this group home for 20 years. He has friends there, a job, and a girlfriend. But now our state is way behind on paying its bills and the group home is saying it may have to kick everyone out that comes from our state.

My parents are in their 70's and can't take care of him. Me taking care of him is not an option. A regular group home doesn't have the resources to take care of him the way he needs (we've tried before).

Please send prayers that the group home gives the state a little more time to pay their bills. I don't know what we are going to do.

every family's worst nightmare-who takes care of our kids? there HAS to be some other avenue- could you move to another state? for residency? Your parents are older- maybe a little condo?

If the worst happens, my parents may move to a state that still has funding, at least until our state gets its finances together and can pay its bills. I'm pretty much stuck here for my job.

I appreciate all of your support. It makes me feel better to know that someone cares.
