Life has gotten more challenging for Mary Holden, the former executive director of troubled Portland foster care provider Give Us This Day.

On Dec. 20, Fat King Investments, a Washington company, forced Holden out of her West Linn home of more than 20 years.

State investigators say Holden improperly spent more than $200,000 of state funds fixing up her house, money intended to serve foster children.

Fat King bought the property out of foreclosure Nov. 10 for $318,500 but had trouble getting Holden to vacate.

In a court filing, Holden said Fat King was guilty of an "illegal seizure" and had bullied and terrorized her. The judge didn't buy that argument.

Holden was unavailable for comment. A federal investigation into Give Us This Day continues.
