On Tuesday, the group Aftermath Relief got the family checked into a room donated by the Blake Hotel. They'll stay there for a couple of days until the CHA can move them into a new apartment.
"It's a real nice hotel. I love it. I'm just happy because it could have been worse off," said Sharon Coleman.
"The kids don't understand about disasters. But we're going to try to make it so they will understand that we can turn sad into a smile," said Kirk Williams, Aftermath Relief.
Aftermath Relief is collecting money, clothing, and furniture for the Colemans. Those interesting in contributing can send donations to:
