Our mobile home caught fire a few weeks ago - we lost everything. We were refered to NTDS by our local fire department. They bought us new clothing, warm blankets, food, and found us a new home to live in within three days. They even brought us Christmas decorations so we could have Christmas! God Bless NTDS!
