Kids have emotional and behavioral issues

From Tacoma, Washington 98404
To whom it may concern,
I am a 32-year-old mother of 4 sons. They are 12, 10, 6 and 2. Three of four have emotional and behavior issues. I've been working with different pediatricians and specialists for years. My oldest was diagnosed with a very high functioning ASD. He also suffers anxiety and depression. I have no diagnosis for my 10 year old but he is the one I’ve struggled with the longest and is of great concern to me. My 6 year old has a diagnosis of ODD, emotional liability and other unidentified mood disorder.
I am jobless and have been for 2.5 years. I only have a home because I live in public housing. I’m fighting DSHS and have recently been sanctioned which brings my monthly income to only $423.00 a month.
My relationship with my youngest son’s father is in tatters as we desperately try to function as a family but our stress of just day to day life is devastatingly hard.
I need any help. Money to pay for or free family counseling, family advocate and or Christmas help. I have no means to provide any type of Christmas for my family this year.
My own physical and mental health has recently declined even though I am seeking employment it feels like an insurmountable task.
I beg with all my heart that if there is help of any kind, please contact me.

We are sorry for your struggles, and we can't imagine how hard it must be to have 3 kids with emotional issues. But you do need a job if have not worked in 2.5 years. You may want to look into all the state and local programs in Washington, and they can be found here. https://www.needhelppayingbills.com/htm ... grams.html
there are several to pick from, and be sure to select your county, etc.
