Homeless Issues #29

We now have the numbers on the homeless population of El Dorado County. We have interviewed and received data from 231 persons living in our county. I estimate that 70+ persons were not found on the days that this count was taken. This is the best census taken by ED County on their homeless population since I have been involved with ED County and participating in the counting of this segment of our population.

Thank you, Dept. of Human Services, ED County, you did a great job!

JSS is in need of tents for when the winter shelter program ends. As always, socks, toilet paper, and now as the summer months approach, deodorant. If anything is dropped off at the Community Resource Center destined for JSS, please attach a tag saying it is for JSS. Also PLEASE join us at the following workshop.
