Troubled Teen Son

Gosh, I am so frustrated! I live in Washington state and there are absolutly no resources for kids with issues like my sons.. He has absolutly everything (well not currently cause I took it all away) He has no respect. He thinks he desearves anything and everything. When he doesn't get his way he cries like a little 5 year old would. I know it sounds horrible, but He argues hardcore and if he doesn't get his way he starts to make threats, like the other night he said if I cutt off his cell he would carve out my brains with my own knife, or that he wishes I would just slit my wrist in the bathtub and kill myself.. he hates me is the most minor of them all. I wish that there were resources. Ive heard of all of these programs other states have but they cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. I truely believe he needs to go to somekind of program outside the home. boot camp, group home for boys where he can learn social skills, personal hygiene etc... I am a single mom of 2 I am disabled it is tough enough to pay the bills we do have... My 4 year old daughter is far better behaved then him, she never crys, I work from home and she allows me to do so, but if I have to work at all when he's home It is pretty much impossible cause he's either screaming at me or pounding on my door or like lately he's decided he doesn't like how I pray during dinner so constantly makes rude remarks during our family dinner and during prayer. So tonight I said no he couldn't go to this class so he cried outside my door for over 30 minutes while I am trying to work on the phone, to confirm interviews for work tomarrow. Then he made his way in here and so i couldn't work at all. Ever since he's been little his issues have came between me and working always having to be called to the school for him or him pretending to be sick, jobs don't stand you having to leave non stop... I need advice. Does anybody know of any resources in Wa that maybe have scholarships or free Idk... He needs help now, not when he's 16 and doing drugs or in juvie....

I cannot get my son to take a shower at all! Every single thing I say to him he either argues about or plan out lies, He won't do anything that is asked of him. He says he doesn't stink but I can't even ride in the car with him without the windows down. He also lays on the couches and makes then stink. I tell him he can't lay on the couches or go anywhere with out taking a shower he doesn't listen he does it anyways, short of ripping him off the couch and throwing him into the shower (if i could since he is bigger then me) I have no idea what to do
