Getting Help After a House Fire?

The Red Cross put us in a motel for three days. They gave us a gift card for food and clothes, etc. We lost it all. The damages exceed over 100,000$ dallors. We have no transportation, no coats, our bills were caught up until November. We put over 30,000$ into the house building onto our home, made with love and faith we never thought a fire would tear our dream of making a house a home in a matter of minutes.


The man who let us start to build this home took our money over the past 4 years and called it rent. I would give the jacket off my back, never thought the shoe would go on the other foot.

I am sorry for your loss but it appears everyone is safe and that is a blessing far greater than what you lost.

Starting over is not easy for anyone but you do not indicate your age, your present health or where you live (country or state) so it is difficult to offer any suggestions other than the normal ones.


Seek out help from your church and local organizations such as the Salvation Army. Some of these may be able to help you for a few days or weeks but probably none can help indefinitely.

it sounds like you may need to seek help from an attorney (Low or no income families can usually get help with "free" legal services) if your "landlord" cheated you.
