My Family Needs A New Home

My name is Julio Bryan Flores and Im 17. I live in a family of 6 with 3 siblings, one of them is 2, another 5, and one of them is 12, along with my parents and my dog. My home was destroyed by the raging fires in Oregon at Phoenix. I never thought Id live a day where I would see everything I ever owned and treasured in my life be incenerated in a matter of seconds. On the day this happened I was ready to celebrate my moms birthday (Beatriz A Gomez) and make her breakfast, but as soon as the sky turned black and the wind blew violently I rushed to grab my family into our van while my mom and I tried grabbing everything we possibly could. My father wasnt home at the time since he left early for work as a mechanic. It was pure hell trying to grab important papers and pictures as we also tried grabbing food and water. I unfortuantely didnt grab anything from my room execpt clothes and my laptop in order to help my mom grab blankets and medication to store in my backpack. The fire was getting too close and as soon as my dad arrived all he could grab was my dog and nothing else.We all lost somthing in my family. My siblings toys, my sisters art supplies, all of my instruments, all of my dads tools, all of my moms personal belongings, and a home. We didnt know that the fire could be this devistating and only packed up to 3 days for clothes. We have nowhere to go, and nowhere to fall back on. Hotels are full and even if we could, our dog would be a problem, he isnt very nice to pets and people and is trying to just protect us. Ever since then my family has been sleeping at parking lots in cars desperate to find a home, we've luckily taken shelter at one of my dad's friends land to be able to settle for a while as ee search. We are such a hard working family and to see how much hard work and money went into our house to just be destroyed is sad.Anything anyone can give us would mean everything to us. Please help my family find a home to finally rest and sleep safely.
