A family in need after fire takes there home

On the evening of June 12th 2019 me, my mom and my four children were just finished eating dinner and watching a movie when our smoke alarms started going off. We all started running around trying to find where the smoke was coming from, we looked in my 7yr old bellas room and mom's Marie Feliciano and found it was full of smoke! We then ran to get my two boys and mom's medications and all our pets out of the house, and called 911 . 7 police cars, 2 fire trucks, and a 40065888_1560994344342452_r.jpeg40065888_1560994417117561_r.jpegambulance showed up they ripped apart the whole ceilings to find a fire in the beams, attic and electric we previously had a leak for a while which we told our landlord who happens to be our church, but wasnt taken care of quickly needless to say we were sitting outside until 12am with my mom who is a cancer survivor and has a couple of other illnesses and my boys who are autistic it's very hard and I have my own disability. The redcross had shown up  finally they helped us get a place to stay for the night. Now we have been in a motel since then the church says they will help us stay in the motel from now till June 30th but we cannot go back to our home because the damages are to much to fix so we have to be out of the house completely by July 14th. The redcross helped with some money for food and some clothes but now we need money to get a home and mattresses and to stay in a motel longer while we continue to look for a home. We are on a fixed income and receive SSI My children and my mom and myself are so heartbroken over this whole ordeal but thank God everyday that no one was hurt and we are all together and alive. It could always be worse . 
Thank God And Thank You for listening and Helping if Able. 
God Bless
