Hello my name Steve and thank you for reading.
Backstory: Me 20 and my brother 27. He is a fullcare disabled child i would call him. He wears diapers and cant speak. He can barley walk but he can get to the fridge and grab a juice but he is incapable of cooking or getting food. Our mother has recently passed and now that is all said and done i am working on custody of my brother. Problem is living situation. I in all honesty need a home. I cant take him in my apartment and i have school. I have some student debt and i have 3 years left for the degree i wanted. That is going on hold now. I have to work fulltime now during the week and have him in the afternoons and on weekends. The state gives him 8 hours of care a day in the form of a nurse that takes him home and feeds and basically care and babysit him so i have a chance to work. His diapers and food is paid for from the state thankfully but the only problem is housing. I dont want him being taken care of by the state %100 in a home. That’s not fair to him. I love him and i want to make sure he is well taken care of. My options are
1. Stay in school and continue to build debt till i hopefully get done and get a great job in 3 years and then i can bring him home.
2. I quit school and work and i rent a home to immediately get custody and just repeat that process my whole life unless i manage to get ahead and eventually buy a home.
3. I hopefully could get the help i need from decent people who understand what family is.
The way i see it with how it is now. I could own a house if i have a big enough down payment and then make payment with whatever job i have to take. Im hoping to raise 75k the housing market in my state is anywhere from 150k for very small or 200k for small/medium 300k for medium/large etc etc. I dont need much just room for me and him. Please anything helps . Help me keep him close in all honesty the dr never thought he would live past 7 or 8 and he is 27. He is amazing and needs mine and your support. Please help and share thank you.
