OROVILLE, Calif.- A family who lost everything in the Camp Fire and has been living in a tent ever since, now has a new place to call home.

Jeannie Denny, her husband Theodore and their two granddaughters, Kadain and Riley moved to Paradise right before the Camp Fire. 

The family has been living in a tent ever since the fire. 

Jeannie Denny says, "We were denied FEMA…In the middle of moving there, I couldn’t establish residency…..not having an I.D. with the address on it….I’ve been called a liar and everything under the sun…it’s been very difficult."

Thanks to the organization, RV4CampFireFamily, founded by James Faircloth, the family recieved a donated RV on Saturday. 

Action News Now reached out to FEMA about the Denny Family. 

In a statement they said, "The impacts of a disaster can be tremendous and life changing. Survivors that have been impacted and living within the declared disaster area are encouraged to register for assistance prior to the declaration deadline. To receive FEMA assistance, proof of residence or occupancy at the time of the disaster will be required.

If an applicant is denied FEMA assistance, information will be provided to them outlining the reason(s) for the denial and steps to possibly overcome the denial. Applicants may also contact FEMA at 1 800 621 FEMA (3362).

It is extremely important for those affected to register prior to the disaster declaration deadline."
