Help for Robin after house fire

I'm starting this fundraiser to help my mom. Without going into too much detail regarding her private life, she left a very unhealthy situation in February of this year. While this was the first step in the right direction, it left her in mental, physical, emotional and financial turmoil. She has been unable to work during the past 3 months and has been getting by with the support of friends and family. She recently decided to get a fresh start in a town closer to my aunt (her sister). Everything was going perfectly - she found the perfect house, landed the perfect job and was over the moon to finally start living again. Yesterday, Saturday, May 2, we packed her up and moved all of her belongings to her new home. We drove back to her old house (about an hour away) to grab the last few items, and her 2 dogs. As soon as we arrived, her phone rang. It was the police department telling her that her new home had caught fire. While some of her belongings are salvageable, every last possession of hers is covered in heavy soot and smoke smell. She, of course, is not able to move into her new home and may also lose her dream job if she cannot secure other housing close to her place of employment.

We are unbelievably grateful that no one was injured in this tragedy and so thankful that we decided not to take her beloved dogs during the first trip, which would have left them in the home at the time of the fire. We praise God during this storm and humbly ask for your monetary donations to help in securing new housing for my mom and in funding the restoration of her personal items. Her immediate needs, unfortunately, are financial, but she also needs household items such as sheets, towels, washcloths, laundry supplies and toiletries. She needs comfy clothes in size small or medium (yoga pants, leggings, shirts and tanks) and flip flops in size 6 1/2 - 7. I'm sure there are other items she will need as well, and anything is very much appreciated.
