Hurricane destroyed my mom's house

Have you ever imaged losing everything? My Mom did. She lost everything in Hurricane Maria. Yet my mom, a long-time teacher and librarian, continues to teach and serve her community - despite the fact that she literally has no roof over her head. Everything inside her house was destroyed. She tried more than eight times to cover the roof with temporary plastic to no avail. To make matters worse, my mom lives alone in the mountains of Puerto Rico. She is living a nightmare. Although me and my siblings are doing all we can to help, its just not enough. Please help us help our mom rebuild her home and rebuild her life. She would do the same for anyone. Thank you!
