Finding a Place to Stay After a House Fire

My kitchen caught fire and now the insurance company says that we can't live there for three to four months and that they don't cover our lodging. We desperately need help. We are in a hotel for now, but our money is running out and we'll be homeless tomorrow at 11:00 am.

Assistance programs to help you out:

The American Red Cross can only help you for 24 hours after a fire. They will give you clothes, shelter, and food during this time. Afterwards, you will receive vouchers to help you with other needs.

This is a fantastic agency that you can contact: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This is a federal agency that administers temporary disaster housing assistance. Many states operate a service for victims of house fires.

You can also call 1-800-BOARDUP. This is North American's best emergency responders. When you call this number and a person will arrive to help you.

You can also call 2-1-1 and find a list of agencies in the area to help you.

Contact salvation army as well your county social services. Contact the church you attend, and tell your HR director what is going on in your life.


HR may have employee assistance which may give you time off.
