Lost everything in a Fire!

Well, once again life has thrown me a curveball. It has taken a long time for me to find the right job, get an apartment that I could really afford and in the school area that my son would not have to change schools.
Then the apartments caught fire! My son and I had only been there one month when it happened. And now we have nothing left. It wasn't the fire that took everything it was the smoke and water. 
This is very hard for me to ask for help. I've always been the kind of person that says, "I can do this. I will be ok." Well, I can't do this and I'm not ok.
I'm not looking to make a profit. I'm just trying to get back on my feet.
I lost my living room furniture, two bedroom sets, all towles, sheets, bedding, and most kitchen items. I have been pricing all these items and that is why I am not asking for a lot of money to replace what we lost. 
There is never a good time for a fire to happen, but just before christmas is really hard.
The owners of the property are going to level the property but they were able to find me another place. 
To everyone that can help.....I am more than greatful and any extra money raised that is not used I will pay it forward to someone else that needs it.
Thank you!
