Outside House Fire!

Hello everyone, I am trying to raise the funds to help me fix the rental house I’m currently renting, my son accidentally caught our house on fire last night, he’s only 15, I’m a widow, his father passed away of cancer when he was barely 6 years old. So he hasn’t had a fatherly figure in his life. I was at work, my son decided he’d try to grill sausages on the grill while I was at work. He’d never done this before, and he wasn’t allowed to cook when I wasn’t home. He thought he could try to surprise me with dinner when I Arrived home, instead I was notified at work my house was on fire, and my son might need to go to the hospital!! I was a nervous wreck! I left work during my closing shift, leaving just 1 coworker to do all closing duties. Only to find my car wouldn’t start, it took me 20 minutes and the help of 2 different customers helping me, to get my car started. I finally arrived home, still in a panic, my son was fine!! Thank the lord!!! But I now have structure damage I’ve to pay to fix out of my pocket, or face possibility of being sued by the owner, since we’re moving in a few weeks, and I canceled my renters insurance. Luckily my house is repairable, since I used to be a contractor, I can fix the damages myself. But there is a cost. Not to mention everything else that was damaged mostly person belongings, that we just don’t have the money for. I am the type of person that hates asking for help! I hate it so much that I’d rather go hungry for weeks and give my food to others than to ask for help. This situation may be my only exception. I need help covering the costs of materials to fix the damage and the cost to replace what we lost in the fire. Any help at all will be graciously appreciated!! And I wish everyone good blessings. Thank you for what help you can afford, and I’m sorry for having to ask for help.
