Tornado destroyed house

Hi everyone,

I don't know how to start this as I've never done it before. On April 22, 2020, my house was hit by a tornado as we lived in Yaupon Cove subdivision in Onalaska, TX. On that dreadful day, my husband and 4 kids were in our house at the time of the event. I was at work suppose to have work until 10pm that night in Huntsville, TX. I got a call from my husband stating that our house was hit by a tornado and that our house was no more. The damage looks a lot worse when viewed in person inside and out. Thankfully my husband and children made it out of the house with minor injuries (scratches/bumps) to no injuries. Our animals also made it as well, however 2 were underneath the house and we couldn't get to them until the next day. One dog was checked out and was given meds for pain, however nothing broken. We basically loss everything. We were able to grab some things that weren't damaged and of sentimental value. We aren't the type to ask for any money during any hard times however for my family, friends, or anyone that would like to help and money is your only way this would hopefully make it easier. Thanks to our family, friends,  coworkers,  community, we had some donations with clothes for us to get by on. We are staying with my parents until we are able to rebuild. 
Any little bit helps and please know we are grateful and thankful for everyone's support and love especially during this time.
