Help mother of 3 who lost home

A great friend of mine called me earlier this evening and her words that followed were, "John the house burned down today. We lost everything....". After I got off the phone with her I went googled the news story and found the attached picture of her house in Southwest Philadelphia. This friend is a mother of 3 great and very intelligent kids, she works 2 jobs in order take care of them and keep them in school. She has 2 jobs, and is also in school working on her degree to be a nurse. She lost her mother and aunt within the same year, and just needs a break and piece of hope in her life.

I shut down fund collecting operations for my start up company in order to send funds her way. She does not deserve to be living in a shelter or any of this, she needs a break and I am asking for assistance for her and her children to, please. Thank you.
