Help us afford temporary shelter

My mother, my sister and I lived in a small apartment in long beach. A fire happened in another room in the building, and we're currently displaced until repairs are finished. However, we can't afford a hotel for too long, or new furniture like a matress and a fridge and various other neccesity for when we return. We're a loving, close knit, but impoverished family that can barely afford the cheapest place in town. My sister and I are young adults pursuing careers, (me as a programmer, her as a chef) and we're not even able to go to college anymore because of this.

Every bit helps, and we can't afford another week or two in this place.
