Get My Family Back Home

Hi! Many of you know me but for those that don't my name is Terry and I need your help.

September of 2013 I got stationed in Washington DC and had to drive cross-country from Arizona. Luckily I didn't have to make this drive alone as my cousin joined me and kept me company. However, during our trip she received a phone call that part of her home had burned down. Fortunately no one was hurt but the home was deemed unlivable and her, her younger brother, and the 4 children she's taking care of had to pack up and leave. 

They've been blessed enough to have friends that could give them shelter but as some of you may know it can become very stressful, tiring, and overall draining. Not only do they have to deal with not being able to go home but also have to share a home with another family. 

She does have insurance and it did help repair some of the damage but it didn't cover it all and after 14 months they still haven't been able to return home.

So I’m turning to you all to help me get her home. I know we all have our own problems and money can be tight but I’m asking that you give whatever amount you can. I set the goal at $2,000 in hopes of reaching it and then adding on whatever I need to in order to get the job done.
