Hurricane Harvey

Hi everyone...where to begin...my husband and I and our 3 fur babies evacuated our house the day of hurricane Harvey's land fall...the first tornado touched down and I was outta there! Good thing we did come to find out later our house received significant damage...I'll get to that in a minute. We had to go a significant distance to escape the massive storm. We evacuated to Atlanta Texas with nothing but ourselves,dogs,and car where we stayed for 7 days. Once we were able to come home our house leaked through the roof and windows leaving allot of moisture in our home and not being there for 7 days created allot of black mould. We are renters so couldn't do anything to fix the house until the owners insurance adjusters came in which they weren't due to arrive until September 9th...10 days after we returned from evacuating. And now are being told we may never be able to move back in. For those of you who don't know my husband and I we run a small business managing and caring for vacation rentals in Galveston Island due to the storm we have lost a significant amount of business and people just keep on cancelling which is our only income. In short, we are asking for help for us to move into a home as the move in costs are more then what we have right now. Being displaced for over 2 weeks has eaten up all of our money.As you all know I've never been through this before this is very disheartening I have lost everything and I'm looking to rebuild.
