The Story

On Monday morning, September 26th, the Craig family of West Bend, Wisconsin experienced a devastating house fire. During the fire, their 18-year old Downs Syndrome daughter was trapped in the basement. Her older brother made valiant attempts to save her, including breaking a window. The fire department rescued her before it was too late. She is currently in the hospital in stable condition, recovering from serious smoke inhalation.  

Their home is a total loss, and they do not have homeowners insurance. The goal is for the community to help them raise $300,000 to rebuild their home and cover their expenses.

The Craig family is very involved in helping the community through reaching out to the jail and prison systems with a faith-based program, as well as through a faith-based addictions ministry in their church, Falls Baptist.

Thank you to each one who has given so generously!  Lydia is recovering, and they are looking to take off the ventilator on Friday.  If everything continues to progress well, she should be out of the hospital soon.  Falls Baptist Church has secured a place for the Craig family to live, and in less than one day has fully furnished the home and supplied the Craig family with many necessities.  The church has raised money this week to help the family with the many items that they need right now.  This YouCaring fundraiser will go directly to enabling them to rebuild their home.  Help us spread the word!
