…if u lost everything, how are u writing this?
i am at my sister in laws house
Umm….family, churches, insurance??????
If your in the US try american red cross or Salvation army.
try your insurance company they can help
we did not have insurance on the house and we have tried our familys they are trying to help us but it is hard when they are trying to help them selfs
Google your city & state & “total fire loss help” Something like that might bring up church group networks of food & clothing banks. Your local tv & newspaper can request items such as furniture, bikes, etc.
My son died in his house fire today in Crawfordsville, IN. He was 41 & was fired a few months ago when he became diabetic (co-pilot). I’m looking for steps to take for his wife. She & children (4 & 6) weren’t home. Home & cars & pets are lost. She needs a LOT of help, too. I am on very small Social Security & disabled. We lost her mother to cancer last year & her brother to heart attack before that. Then my granddaughter died, so we’re wiped out financially & emotionally.
Just keep searching the Internet. Even Craigslist has a wanted column, where you can list some immediate needs. Good luck to you. Arlene in West Lafayette, IN
The American Red Cross is a resource for people who have had a house fire you can dial 211 to get some information from them.
Sherooo, you’re a ******* *******.
we lost everything in house fire aug.5 looking for any kind of help
what websites can i look up to get help and assistance after a housefire? me, my husband and my 16 month old son lost everything the other night when our house caught on fire. everyting we ever owned was in that house. Now were having to start from scratch. Luckily i have an aunt that is letting us stay with her but I dont feel like her husband likes us staying here all that much and it makes me feel uncomfortable. But then again i have no where else to go. We dont even have any clothes besides what we was wearing the day of the fire. and its really hard to take care of a baby without nothing (diapers, clothes, wipes, ect)
we had a house fire on 9/11/2010 and it burnt half are house and it burnt my sons clothes and bike and myories he had ext. and it burnt my step sons clothes to and it smoked damaged the rest of are house we need help in fixing rebuilding are house me and my husband have 3 boys and 2 girls we need help misty chris snider
…if u lost everything, how are u writing this?
Why would you write that, there are libraries and other ways to access a computer. DUH!!! Shes going through a tragedy and this comment is ridiculous.
Go to Red Cross, they help alot and try to have a benefit for your family at a Church. Your local community will help also. Last week a fire engulfed my house in seconds. I lost my dog and I have three small children (were at school), anyway the local high school helped by donating money for Christmas. All the presents were in the house. A fire is a wake up call and just remeber that these horrible moments shape our character. Stay positive
I’m wondering if anyone knows of a system that communities use to make these kinds of needs known to others…I’m thinking something online that lists specifically things that are needed so people can donate gently used stuff or give specific items they’ve bought. Let me know! The Red Cross here locally doesn’t have this sort of system and the only thing they can do for the donor end is have the people get in touch with me (to protect the folks privacy is one concern). We’ve had about 8 fires in the last month, so that’d be a lot of individuals to help piece by piece. I want to centralize this - but how!?
I had a house fire today. I do not know how I will fix anything now.
My husband and I lost everything. How do you get help. we had insurance not enough. Is there help out there. we are days from being homeless.
Hi,my name is Trudi Greenwood and I lost everything in a house fire in july the bad part about it is that everyone that knew my struggle before the house fire said they would help,but noone has come forward to do anything.My mom died in 2006 and left her house to my sister and I.before she died she asked that I would promise I would finish it.I paid a contractor 10,000 dollars to do the work and he spent the money on himself and left me with no flooring,no full kitchen,an unfinished roof(that started leaking)and unfinished electrical work that actually caused the fire.I feel so lost,dont know where to go from here,if I could possibly get some suggestions or help,I would really be indebted to you. getting back to Mr.Glenn Moorehead (the guy who ran off with my money),i did take him to court last year and won,its been a year this past october and he hasnt given me not 1 cent yet.The lawyer that I have won’t return any of my calls or any of my messages.I have managed to get a bathroom and my bedroom livable.PLEASE someone give me some advice.

My house caught fire 4/27/12. when the inncident occured i was lost. but, now after months of research, i am thankful. i did have insurance, so i received like 60k to replace and rebuild everything! which all of you know is pennies when trying to rebuild a home. but, i sat back and did my research. i did not hire a contractor. i only got estimates from about 7, then i went and search for each individual person that could complete the job with me buying material. so i will spend about 20k to rebuild.
I recommend to go to the labor polls, craiglist, talk to your neighbors. i have found that everyone knows someone, who can do something. even if they are not licensed, you can pull a homeowner permit and hire them as sub-contractors under yourself. paying yourself and them!you can pay a laborer $40 for the entire day!”skilled trade laborer”
Also, if you buy any material, go to the post office and get a “change of address form, there is always a 20% off coupon from lowe’s!
Does anyone have red cross tax emempt number, i cannot finf minds.

My daughter and 2 year old grandaughter just lost everything due to a house fire May 2014.Yhey had no insurance.Tryimg to get them help not sure where to go or who to ask for help.Very sad situation..
Disaster recovery companies are available to help in these difficult situations. I personally used “Kustom US”– they worked with my insurance to maximize my claim, they restored my belongings inside my house and even rebuilt my house to make it look EVEN BETTER than it did prior to the fire. If nothing else, it eased my mind knowing that professionals were with me every step of the way to make sure everything was being done correctly. (Their Emergency number is 866-679-0699)
Phone 999, 911 or 912. Tell the about the fire and were your house is. They will come soon and put out the fire.
You should have learnt that in school.
