Lailah Exum, Emaja Blackwell and her mother Joy Kelly Blackwell Are in need of funds to obtain a new apartment as they have been displaced due to an apartment fire and no renters insurance. They are also in need of funds to replace items that were destroyed as well.

A few days ago as Joy was cooking dinner a splash of grease hit the wall and the wall in kitchen engrossed in flames.  The family was forced to run outside in freezing temperatures as Joy raced back in to use fire extinguisher and suffered several 2nd degree burns as a result.  My daughter and sister and their mother are now homeless.  Fortunately the church she attends were resourceful and helped her salvage a few things but my daughter Lailah and her sister have lost many electronics, clothes, personal and very sentimental items.  More importantly, they now do not have a home and have temporary living with her coworker.  They are needing as much financial help to be able to pay 1st, last months rent and deposit on a new apartment.  I am overextended in my finances as I have done all I can financially and am looking to friends and extended family to help if possible, anything you can do is sincerely appreciated.
