Home fire

Hi, my name is Kemone, and I need help.

Typing that was terrifying. I feel like there should be some sort of support group for people who have trauma with asking for help.

Well, here goes. I’m pushing through. The building I live in caught on fire. Thank god me and my son were not at home when it happened. I don’t really know the exact dollar amount I will need but I was advised at a starting point. We are displaced right now in a hotel until further assistance from various organizations. In the meantime we have established that I will need a new long term place to live so I will need immediate assistance and also long term as I will need new furniture and clothes for me and my son when we relocate.

*My landlords insurance does not cover tenants and I did not have renters insurance.

*I work for a at home company that does not allow us to work anywhere but home due to security issues and needing to have hard wired internet access so I will not be working until I’m in permanent housing (They might be able to give me temp pay but that’s still pending and up in the air.)

*I also don’t have a car right now. I blew the engine on my car and the warranty department is giving me a hard time with covering it so it’s just sitting at the Kia dealership waiting for approval meanwhile I’m still paying my car note as well. I won’t be approved for a rental until I get approved.
