Need help to recover from a devasting fire

Hey, ya'll! My name is Felicia. I am in dire need of some help. On Dec 30th, 2021 my house caught fire. Since the fire, we have not been able to find another place to live. We lost our car and have been living in a hotel since February 8th. My landlord will not rent to us again even though we are still in a lease and were not behind on our rent or bills. We were relatively good tenants. I am at my breaking point. I have exhausted all of my taxes living in this hotel. My car breaking down has not helped the situation any, and I wasn't sure how I would pay for the room, so I sold it so I could keep a roof over my kid's head. Oh, did I mention there are three kids, two dogs, my husband and I in one double-bed hotel room? 2022 has been an extremely rough year for us, and I don't honestly know what to do anymore. My husband works, and I am currently looking for work. I don't see any light at the end of this awful situation. At this point, I am begging for help from anybody. With the high increases to everything, rent being one of those increases, I have had a tough time finding anything in our price range or big enough for my family. We can't save any money while paying $1300 a month in hotel costs, plus three kids and having to start all over. Then not being able to get around and having to pay a storage unit fee, not to mention everything we did have in our garage, is still there, yet my landlord is illegally allowing someone else to move into our home once it is fully renovated, which it's not done. We are going on six months since the fire. Please, if you can help out in any way possible, my family would be forever grateful. We are all going insane living in this small hotel room. My oldest son will be 16 on the 19th of June, and my other two are 14 and 10. We just want our lives back and want to move on from this horrible tragic accident. I have tried everything, called every program and every shelter. All three of my children's schools have called and tried to find any and all resources to help my family, and nobody will help us. My kids want their normal life back and a home to call their home! The picture below is a collage I made of photos from the fire. I have everything to provide to anybody showing that everything I have said is accurate and true. I have tried to come back from this without help, and with us not having any family, we just can't seem to do that without some help. Please, if you're reading this, anything at this point will help us, and we will be so greatly appreciative!
