The BIG news; After the full board, and the board advisers, of JSS met on Sept. 19, it was decided to undertake the dream of building a facility, as a transitional unit for the single persons who find themselves without a place to stay safe as they re-enter the work force. Working with others, we plan to build this facility. We have transitional housing for women with children in the county now. This would be the only safe, and protected, place for the single person to go as they re-enter the work force and again become contributors to our community. We will be asking for your help and prayers in achieving that goal. This would be one place to collect themselves and “get on with their lives.” They would benefit from the resources that the others provides, have a warm bed during the winter months, a shower, and a place to hang their clothing as they work to re-enter the work force.
This is a huge undertaking and is going to require everyone’s participation and help. It won’t “happen over night,” but we need to begin now. If all goes well, we could see results within a few years.
We need your help in convincing the County Board of Supervisors and others in our community that this facility is a must. El Dorado County is the only county in Californians that does not have, or pay for, some facility for single persons who are out of work and need re-entry assistance..
