House fire caused our displacement

On 12/07 my 3 kids and I came home to a burning house.  The A/C unit that the owner had been piecing together for 5 years caught the house on fire.  Myself, husband & kids have lost everything. The homeowner has not provided me with any accommodations nor has he given me any of my deposit or rent back to help me.  Prior to this, my husband was in a serious car accident on Saturday leaving him with severe injuries to his arm. I am 8 months pregnant with our twin girls and will be unable to work soon.  We have gotten help from the community with gifts for our kids & clothing, which we are ever so grateful for.  But the homeless program through social services only allows us to stay in a hotel for 16 days.  After this, we are basically on our own and would need to pay out of pocket for the hotel.  I have been looking for places to rent, but with COVID & Madera County not having many places it has been hard to find anything.  The expenses of this funding would be used for us to stay in a hotel longer & if by the grace of God we found a place it would be used for anything we may need to furnish our home.  Anything and everything helps.  Even if you have leads on a rental property available.  Thank you.
