Help my mom rebuild her dream

On 5.23.2014 my mom lost everything she ever worked for. At around 3PM, an electrical fire unexpectedly engulfed her home. Her prestine home, the furniture she assigned memories to, the evidence of how much she was able to accomplish as a single mom is gone. We recognize how incredibly lucky we are that no one was hurt and are incredibly grateful for all the volunteers that helped us salvage the bare essentials and furniture that was not destroyed. Although she had tried multiple times to obtain insurance she was denied due to her proximity to the coast. We hope that you will consider helping us help her regain a sense of normalcy and security that only come with a home. Currently, we are working to secure her belongings, move them to storage while we secure alternate housing. All money raised will go to cover moving expenses, pressing furniture needs, clothing and bare essentials.
