Hurricane Harvey Help

Hello, my name is Vanessa. My family is from Massachusetts, and we moved to Texas 3 years ago. We had to evacuate from our home in SE Houston due to Hurricane Harvey, and now we are stranded living in hotels outside of Dallas, unable to reach our home in La Porte, TX due to flooding and road closures. I am trying to raise money for food, lodging, gas, and essentials (like soap, detergent, diapers, and wipes) for me (Vanessa), my husband (Stevenson), and our two babies, (Orion, 2, and Leilani, 1). We are also considering flying back to Massachusetts to stay with family while we wait out the storm in the next week if we still cannnot reach our home and will need help with the airfare cost. I was supposed to start a new job near downtown Houston on Monday, 8/28, but the office has closed down due to flooding. My family has no income until I am able to start this job. My husband was supposed to start the police academy on 9/5 at the University of Houston, but that is up in the air now due to the flooding. Any little bit would help us to get through this difficult time. Thank you so much andGod bless. (The funds will be directly deposited into my (Vanessa) bank account to be used for essential items like food, lodging, gas, rent, and  every day living necessities.)
