Homeless Issue #13

The sun is shining on these gloomy 13 days. You BET-CHUM!!

Cold Springs Community Church opened their doors to the homeless on Wednesday night, and will open them every Wednesday night in the foreseeable future. Everything went well; everything fell into place; volunteers where there from 6 different organizations, and complete organization prevailed. Praise the Lord!!!!!!

PASTOR DAVE BUNJE IS WORKING TO CLARIFY WITH THE COUNTY THAT TEMPORARY SHELTERING OF HOMELESS PERSONS IS A NATURAL AND PERMITTED MINISTRY OF A CHURCH. He is getting evidence from churches who are currently involved in homeless ministry in Nevada, Placer, Sacramento,Solano counties. This evidence will be used to persuade county officials that they need not block churches from doing what they are called to do.

Community Health Care, funded thought Federal funds and not governed by ED County, is stepping up programs to serve the homeless population of this County. That is so, so welcomed. They are really, really putting an effort to connect through the network of homeless providers that this network works with.

The Lovely Ladies known as the “MAD HATTERS” are Muddily Hatting. And what a blessing that is, as we know the body loseWeight Exercises most of it’s heat through the head. You lade are warming cool heads. THANK YOU!

Bill Roby of “El Dorado County Foundation” Is meeting, one on one, with all the principals of all of the homeless providers to assess who can do what for whom. A VERY necessary, appreciated, and well thought out move on their part.  We look forward to working with you.

Perks Point transitional housing is now up and running. There are 3 adults and three children in the house now. It is at the County dictated maximum. BTW. The location has a new name. (I just can’t find where I wrote it down)


Candles. At least 2 1/2″ diameter. Need them badly. The only source of heat in a tent.

Socks. Need dry feet.

Toilet paper. Need dry butts.

Tents. Need dry sleeping place. At least 2 man/women size.

Tarpaulins. Need dry place to place dry tents and outdoor sitting/standing room.

NEED more respect, understanding, patience, and love for those in our community who do not have the resources, the we enjoy.

Check are always welcome so we can purchase items that are not donated, rain gear, medications, gas for delivery, special needs, and those “unexpected” times. I have been doing this for almost 20 years and Nutt’n is ever predictable and the experiences run a full spectrum of enjoyment and sorrow. I thank each of you for your interest in our homeless population.

Keep in your prayers, thoughts and concern for Walt Rice the help mate of Josie Rice the Food coordinator for F.A.I.T.H. He fell off a roof and suffered multi-damage. They are both leaders and doers of preparing and delivering food to the homeless population of ED County.
