Family Needs Help Moving After Tragedy

11/04/2019 Currently still recovering. Still too soon to go back to work, and Social Security is taking a very long time. Currently staying with family, but have to relocate by the 29th of this month (they're selling the house 11/29). Really need help with first month, security deposit and electricity deposit. I can keep up with rent after that. Anything helps. Thank you.! https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/2-women-injured-in-drive-by-shooting-while-standing-in-driveway-on-detroits-west-side  On 7/30 someone came to my house talking about it was his. I told him I pay for the house , and showed him where his people had lost it before he got out of prison. He came back the next day,(7/31) kicked my door in while I was gone & put all me and my kids belongings out. I called the police, they took two hours to come. Boy ripped up my lease agreement, pulled a gun on me and all kinds of stuff. Finally, my uncle came and ran the guy off. But the guy said if he can't have the house, nobody will. 8/5 at 12:30am I was standing in my driveway talking to my brother, and two cars pulled up & started shooting into the driveway/garage area. I tried to take cover and as I went to run, I got hit in my ankle. I fell to the ground and crawled under the car I was originally standing next to. The bullets just kept flying passed me, and finally they stopped. I crawled to the tire of my car and tried to stand up, I couldn't. I crawled to the breezeway of my house &then got carried to my car & driven to the hospital. A DARK GREY 2005/2006 EQUINOX LICENSE PLATE DVP2385 AND A SILVER JEEP LIBERTY WERE THE CARS THAT PULLED UP AND STARTED SHOOTING. I got shot, along with my kid's aunt. We very well could have died. They let off at least 20/30 shots. Bullets were flying by my FACE. Luckily my kids (4,2&1) , little cousin , or nieces weren't hit. While I was in the hospital getting my gunshot wound to my ankle checked out, my car got burned in my grandmother's driveway & then towed by police. The morning of 8/6  , my house got burned.  In less than a week, me and my 3 kids have lost literally everything from our only transportation, to our home, to my ability to walk or try to provide.  As of 8/24 I've undergone 2 foot surgeries, and a lot of pain already. By the grace of God , A family member gave us a house, but we have to make it a home. There are numerous repairs that need to be done before it's livable. All 3 of my kids are now in foster care, due to lack of suitable housing They've all been split up I need to get them HOME! Really need everyone to come together and help achieve this goal. Please. https://www.wxyz.com/news/woman-gets-shot-her-home-and-car-catch-fire-the-next-day-on-detroits-west-side Anything is appreciated. Even if you can't donate, please share.  Thank you.
