    So, with all due respect, did they not have homeowners insurance? That is a bit of info that would be helpful to know. If they did, then insurance should help them with immediate needs as well as help with rebuilding. If not, then by all means help these folks out but why the heck would they not have insurance. It is senseless to have a home without insurance even if you are renting.
