Family lost everything to home fire

On January 2nd, I and my three children moved into a new home and we're waiting for the power company to come turn the power on. Apparently the previous tenants had left the stove on, so when the power company turn the electricity on, the stove ignited and caught all of my boxes in the kitchen on fire, resulting in a housewide fire that destroyed all of our belongings. My children have no clothes, no beds, no mattresses, no toys, and I lost all of my expensive medication, important documents, all my clothes, all my furniture, all household items, we lost everything. The money would be used to help with housing, clothes, everyday necessities such as hygiene products, blankets, towels, basically anything you would need for a home and for for five to six year old children. I have a 5 year old son and 6 year old boy and girl twins. I also have a service animal who lost her paperwork, medications, and food, all of which need to be replaced. Any help is greatly appreciated. God bless!
