As you may be aware from the recent news stories, our friends and Observatory Hill neighbors, the Portuguez family have recently been forced to evacuate their home where they have lived for the past nine years. They left with short notice and took very little with them.

The family has been told that the homeowner's insurance does not cover landslides.  Only a one week hotel stay was provided by the Red Cross and they have been told they will not be able to help long term. We are working to find them housing as they await the fate of their home.  After speaking with building inspection, we were told it will take 10 to 12 weeks to receive the results of the geotesting that was performed on the area surrounding the home. Once the results are in, recommendations will be made.

OHI has started a GoFundMe page in an effort to help this family to rebuild their lives. We thank you for your support.
