Replace the Trivette home after a total loss fire.

Hello, my name is Jacob Trivette. I am raising funds for myself, my wife and our children to replace our home after it was lost 1:30 am on 2/15/2023. The cover photo shows all that remains of our home. It was a complete loss. We were all able to get out after we saw our home had filled with smoke with the shoes we had on and the clothing (pajamas) we were wearing. I was getting water and trying to put it out below the house while my wife got our daughter and her cat out but the crawl space was already mostly ablaze. It happened quickly catching the home on fire within 20 mins of us getting out and contacting 911 after noticing the smoke. The fire marshal told me likely that it was electrical and they thought it was the electric heat kicking on that started it possibly but I have not gotten a final fire report yet. We have lost everything in the home, all the photos, sentimental objects, valuable possessions and more. We are seeking your help to replace the home itself (we own the land) and get clothing, shoes and essentials.. We have reached out to the local Rams Rack which helped us with a few sets of clothing and some food to help us get through the few days since the fire. Unfortunately I did not have insurance on the home itself because I have been living paycheck to paycheck. Anything you can donate will help, it will all go towards buying the home, getting it set up, inspected and giving us a place to live.
I am so thankful that our family made it out safely, along with our daughters cat. No lives we're lost but we have lost all of our possessions. I was even given 30$ by a stranger when we were getting food and using the laundromat. I was tearing up helping them carry out their laundry.
Thankfully we still have our vehicle (but not keys) and my family has been letting us use their appliances to cook, to clean and to get water and shower. But we currently don't have a place to live or our own water and power. We are living together in a small building with wood heat to stay warm and relying on my family for other daily needs besides a place to sleep. Please help us get our own home again, please help us get a place set up where we can live. Thank you. So much. Anything little thing will help us out tremendously!
