June 19th Update
On June 12, OP's Ensign residence in New Hope was heavily damaged by fire. We are so grateful that our staff discovered the fire and rushed to get a resident out safely. Two other residents were not home at the time. The outcome could have been so much worse, and for that, we are thankful.
But sadly, three gentlemen ages 62-70 have lost their home of more than 20 years along with precious possessions. An OP van was also destroyed in the fire, along with the staff person's car.
Our insurance adjusters have declared the house a total loss.
We anticipate significant gaps in uncovered costs like insurance deductibles, replacement of items lost, and other expenses above and beyond our policy limits.
Our goal is to raise up to $300,000 to rebuild or purchase a new home.
Many of you have asked how you can help. As we continue to learn more, your support will be critical to move forward.
Yes, you CAN make a difference. Support the Ensign house fire fund.
