Now that they have been able to access their home and assess the damage, we believe that financial contributions will provide them the greatest immediate benefit, as they are faced with being displaced for an undetermined amount of time, making extensive repairs to the sheet rock, flooring, and cabinet fixtures.  In addition to the repairs to their home, they will also have to replace clothes, furniture, and other household goods. 

While all of their material items can be replaced, we are most grateful for their safety and that they are here for us to support through this journey.  We greatly appreciate any and all of your contributions to help get this family back in their home!
