The Stevensons live in a small town in Georgia and were recently hit with a large hurricane. They applied for FEMA ( Federal Emergency Management Agency) and got accepted which helped them repair some of the damage done to their house. This helped them get started fixing damages while saving up money to fix the damages FEMA didnt provide money to fix. Currently the Stevensons are working multiple jobs and cutting down on spending to save to repair damages and become independent from FEMA.
