Family of 5 lost everything in fire

Last night, my mother's house burnt down. They lost everything.

In the house was my two younger sister's (age 14 and 15) and their dog. My mother was outside at the moment, my father at work, and my younger brother (age 14) at his friends house, when the house caught fire.

Thankfully everyone got out with only minor injuries.

My mother is one of the strongest women I've ever met, and after already losing one child to cancer (at age 6), and then being blessed with three more beautiful children, she does not deserve this. 

Last night we spent most of the night in the hospital and the family was separated due to the time restraints of finding a place to house 5 people and a dog with no money or credit cards or even I.D.

My brother stayed at his friends house, one sister and the dog stayed at my house, and my other sister stayed at her boyfriends house. [They wont admit it but I'm pretty sure my parents slept in their car last night].

The house is a write-off, anything that the fire didn't consume, the water and smoke did.

I've done what i can, but unfortunately I'm not financially "well" myself so I'm here asking for your help. Three kids, fresh into high school with no clothes, no food, no bed, nothing. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Please, help me give back to the woman that has given me so much.
