Oregon City, Oregon (December 30, 2015, 12:00 pm): Following severe winter storms affecting our region, landslide concerns forced the evacuation of Forest Edge and Berryhill Park Apartments in Oregon City on Dec 20. With the support of Oregon City High School, the American Red Cross aided residents by opening a shelter at the high school, providing meals, child care, casework services, health and emotional support for evacuees. The City of Oregon City and Clackamas County Social Service agencies are committed to helping affected residents transitioning from the shelter to long term housing. The shelter is scheduled to close on January 3, 2016.

"This important transition process has been made possible with the help of multiple city and county agencies, local community and faith-based groups, and generous support from people in Oregon City and Clackamas County who have offered a wide range of service and support," says Wyatt Parno, acting City Manager.

American Red Cross and Clackamas County Social Services have been available at the shelter since it opened to connect residents with resources. Clackamas County Social Services will continue to work with residents and refer resources to those still working on relocation. Residents affected by the evacuations have been asked to contact the Clackamas County Social Services Hotline at (503) 650-5737, to access services.

Individuals wanting to help those who have been adversely affected by the slide evacuation are encouraged to make monetary donations to an established fund to assist residents with relocation costs. Tax deductible donations can be made in person or by mail at any Lewis & Clark Bank under "Oregon City Landslide Relief Fund."
