Homeless because of Irma

You all know how rough Hurricane Irma was for this state. Alot of people lost power and had damaged homes. Sadly our home was flooded to the point where it was deemed unsafe for habitation by code enforcement and we are now homeless. FEMA put us in a hotel until the 9/24, but that's it. We have applied for every other help resource we could find, but so far nothing. I know most of the people we know don't have much, but anything would help. We have been looking at tons of places and crunching numbers. The reason we set our goal at $2000 is that's the average amount it'll cost to move into any new place (rest+deposit+ electric depost, etc). We are saving every dime we have as well, but living out of a hotel that is so far from our jobs and our son's school and not having a kitchen to use in the hotel definitely make life hard. Thank you in advance for any help (even just sharing this) that you can spare.
