Fire Recovery

Just one year ago my brother-in-law, Phil, and his wife, Rosanna, purchased a new home in the hills of Ventura to live  with their two beautiful girls, Eva and Maci.  And two weeks ago, they happily welcomed a third child to their family, an adorable baby boy named Miles.  Life was good.  Unfortunately, their lives were changed on the evening of December 4.  Phil received a call from a friend asking if he and his family were safe as the fires in Ventura were approaching the area where he lived.  Phil, looked out his window and saw a wall of fire not too far from his home.  He and Rosanna grabbed their three sleeping children, put them in the car, and drove to his in-laws'  home to safety.  The next morning they learned that their home and all of their belongings were devastated by the fire.  Thankfully, they are all safe.  However, they have nothing but the clothes they wore the evening they left their home.  Everything was destroyed.  They are still trying to process the loss and figure out what they need to do going forward.  Any contributions you can make to help them would be greatly appreciated.
