Help My MOM fight Harvey Aftermath

My name is Mariah  and My mom needs help. Hurricane Harvey invaded her home and took everything. On top of that she is dealing with so much . We  have had several deaths in the family. My mothers sister passed away battleing cancer ,  her father, and her two brothers  all passed within the last year.  We are oringinally from California. I have  lived in Houston for a few years and finally convinced my mom to move to Houston.  I am her only daughter and being close she decided it was time to start fresh. She finally took the plunge. She got  movers, packed, and everything shipped to Texas. She moved here 3 weeks ago, all her belongings  were delivered 2 weeks ago , then  Hurricane Harvey hit and took everything away. Her new place was flooded . We spent the day sweeping water out, tossed furniture,  and threw away all the boxes she has yet to unpack.

I need her to be happy again. My heart hurts and need  help to get her back on her feet . She is staying with me but I can't do it by myself.  It's taking a toll on her. As she plans the funeral of my uncle she is also trying to figure out where she will live. 

The funds will be spent cleaning, moving, replacing furniture and misc items that were thrown away , and a ticket to California to attend her brothers funeral. 

Please if you can help. My mom needs it.
