Nelson Florence Flood Relieve

I am raising this money to help my family  pay for our displacement because it will take months for us to get back in our home and FEMA has told us that we do not qualify for any assistance.  And we must continue to pay a mortgage on a house we cannot live in.   We have only been in our home for 3 weeks.  We went through Hurricane Florence and our home was flooded with over 8 ft of water.   All of our first floor was destroyed, including all furniture and appliances in kitchen, laundry room, bedroom, living room and garage.  My car was also in the garage and it was totally submerged in water.   

The money will go to pay for housing expenses for temporary housing and help for mortgage on a house we cannot use.  Also, to help pay for transportation expenses.    

I need funds as soon as possible because we are living in temporary housing while paying for a mortgage.
