I am also concerned as the OP is relatively new to the forum.
Totally understand Herk, I would be cautious as well. Fortunately for the family, they are going to live right beside the son's mother and father who are very supportive. The young father is working, so income is there.
I've had offers to send contributions by paypal. I'll have to check if they have an account with them. Initially, I was thinking contributions could be sent to me if they don't, but I'm not really comfortable with that. All in all, I think they'll be just fine.
