rebuilding from fire disaster

February 18th myself and 12 other tenants lost everything from a tragic fire due to the neglect from another tenant. Luckily myself & 4 other tenants were in the building when the raging inferno had us dive thru flames & were safe by 1st responders. The complex was demolished days following. As only 1 year in nyc from philadelphia with a great position at javits convention center, unfortunately the reality set in & has become very hard to meet the means to find immediate residence options at this time. As a godsend, I'm temporarily staying with a dear friend on the East Side to find immediate options. This is the toughest and most humbling putting this out publicly. I'm not expecting much but I need additional funds for finding a secure temporary residence & to rebuild living necessities.  My deep sincere thanks & respect for any help you could provide during this nightmare.
