Mary Huguley was back at work managing a church-based thrift shop in downtown Enterprise after a Christmas Eve fire destroyed her home.
Decorations on a Christmas tree are believed to be responsible for the blaze.
She and her three teenage foster children are without shelter.
Huguley has helped countless people in similar circumstances and now, the Red Cross and others have come to her assistance.
"We can't stop just because of tragedies. We have to keep on living and help others. I’m just thankful for the whole community," says Huguley.
