(KMOV) – After storms ravaged areas of north St. Louis last week, one family learned that it could cost $75,000 to repair their home on Bircher Blvd.

That’s more than what the home is worth.  

For nearly a week, a Deb Bell and her two children stayed in motel rooms. Finding a permanent solution has proved difficult due to lack of insurance.

The alderman for the 21st ward set up a fund for the family, and is working to get them through the Rapid Re-Housing program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This will get them into a new home.

Donations for the Bell family can be given at any US Bank branch.
