I'm Luke, I'm 10 years old and I like to play basketball.
Hello, we are the Johnson's.
I'm Emma, I'm 7 years old, and I like to play soccer.
I'm Mark, I'm 38, and I work as a veterinarian in downtown Los Angeles.
I'm Carol, I'm 37, and I work as a registered nurse in downtown Los Angeles.
Then, an earthquake came and destroyed our entire house. We were devastated! We had no idea what to do! Our insurance helped with some of the expenses, but it wasn't enough to rebuild our home.
What are we going to do?!
That's when we found FEMA. We filled out an application and found out we qualified! The only requirements were that we must be a U.S. citizen. They then gave us a new place to live while we got back on our feet and gave us a grant to help us rebuild our house.
Thank you so much! I don't know what we would've done without you!
FEMA would like to offer you: $10,000!!!
Don't worry guys! You can live here for a couple months until you can get back on your feet. And just to help with that we would like to offer you a grant of $10,000 to help you rebuild your home!
Mark and I continued going to work and eventually saved up enough money to rebuild our house.
So we said goodbye to the house we had been staying in, and with the help of FEMA moved into our new house!
We are so grateful to FEMA. Without their help we would have never been able to do any of this! Thank you so much FEMA!
