At 17, can a teenager move out of their parents house to live with a grandparent if their parents are not able to properly take care of them?

They have no money to take care of them, plus there are other problems as well?

Given what you have written about it seems that it would be in your best interests that you move out of where you are living and reside with your grandparents. Perhaps consulting with a family law attorney as well should assist you as well as your local department of social services.
