Harvey Relief - Escamilla Family

The Escamilla Family have lost 75% of their belongings to Hurricane Harvey.  They live in Dickinson, TX where their 1 story house took on 2 feet of water, taking everything with it.  Kim and Peter managed to evacuate their 2 kids and dog on a  bounce house they hurridly blew up in the storm, and waded in chest deep water to be rescued by boat.  They lost both cars to the flood and did not have Flood Insurance for the house, due to it not being in a flood plan area.  Both of these parents are the most hardworking individuals, Peter works at a refinery as an engineer and Kim is on her last 2 semesters in nursing school.  Life must go on, so I am asking for your help to keep them sustained while they try to complete the repairs on their house (will take months) keep their family on the path of restoration, and Kim can complete her Nursing Degree for May 2018!  I'm really trying to get enough money so that they can afford a apartment for their 2 children for the duration of the repairs on their house.  It will be at least 6 months before they can even think about moving back in.  But if we can raise more then maybe they will not have to rely on FEMA for assistance and we can get them in a lot sooner!  Anything helps and is greatly appreciated.  Rental for our area is about 1200/month (ie my goal of 3,000)  Please help me attain this and hopefully so much more!
