According to "Inside Edition," the family was finally granted state housing but couldn't afford to furnish the home. Daeyrs had been sleeping on only blankets until the family got the help they needed.
Nonprofit organization Humble Design stepped in to make the house a home for the family.
"When we visited them earlier this week they just had an air mattress on the ground and a few camp chairs," the organization wrote on Facebook.
