A Williamson County family who lost their house to February's fatal tornados may soon lose the place they've since called home.

Prior to February 5, Shirley Humphrey, her husband and five other family members rented a small home in Fairview.

When the storms blew through everything they had was either ruined or destroyed and because they didn't have insurance and there is no federal aid for renters like her, they were left with nothing.

Agencies like Red Cross helped immediately after the storm, but now, five months later, the Humphreys are still looking for a permanent place to call home.

At the time, Humphrey said she had no idea the road to recovery would be so rocky.

She and her family are currently staying at the Park Village Apartments in Fairview but the apartment is too expensive and won't allow them to keep all their pets.

A majority of their pets were left at the home that was destroyed and each day, Humphrey says she returns to home to feed and take care of them.

The family is looking to move to a home in the country by the end of the summer, they just hope they will be able to do so.
