Homeless Issues #58

Crisis Time, two issues.
Moving HangTown Haven to a new location by November 14th. We
have been asked by a County Supervisor to engage, and get local
especially in District 3, to endorse, get behind and support erecting
the new HangTown Haven project at Perks Court. (The Supervisor has to
know that he will be blessed and not cursed if he backs this move) This
property is located in District 3, thus a strong endorsement by churches
and organizations in that District is vital to having a sober, safe,
place for persons who will follow rules and cooperate in managing a
living area for homeless individuals.

are asking Churches and Organizations to write a letter of
endorsement/support by your church congregations, organizational
membership, and individuals to Supervisor
Brian Veerkamp, District 3 El Dorado County, 330 Fair Lane,
Placerville, CA. 95667 OR to your Supervisor of your District at the
same address. OR send an E-Mail to …….. BOSTHREE@edcgov.us
or if you are in another district, send it to BOSone@edcgov.us ;
BOStwo@edcgov.us; BOSfour@edcgov.us; BOSfive@edcgov.us.
need their approval to set up the encampment, their endorsement for
special use permits; and since the property is zoned commercial, no
zoning issues should arise, but just might arise. We need this in
addition to the 300 signatures we have on the petitions you already sent
in. We are asking for a 5-year lease. Please send a copy of what you
send to; HangTown Haven, PO Box 89, Placerville, CA. 95667, or back to
this e-mail address.

This is a “BIGGIE” for Job’s Shelters of the Sierra (JSS)
distributes, delivers, to the homeless encampments in El Dorado County
and to churches in the South County that serve the homeless population
in their area, and has done so for 6 years. Distribute and deliver are
the key words we have to address. The 2005
Jeep Liberty that is used to make the pick-ups and deliveries has
90,327 miles on it and now  has major medical problems. The body is in pristine condition. Without that Jeep, we are out of business.

The diagnoses: By The Auto Analyst located on MotherLoad.

Checked for the #5 cylinder misfires, which the vehicles #5 cylinder is
constantly counting misfires from that cylinder. We performed a
cylinder leak down test=40% going past the intake valve, indicating
there is a valve seating problem. Suspect there is a problem with the
valve being burnt, worn valve seal or seat, causing carbon to build up
on the valve.This will require removing the cylinder head to further
inspect what needs to be done.”
COST: $2700.00 to  $3400.00

JSS does not have that kind of money. Can you help? Or your group help? If you can, please send checks to; JSS, P.O. Box 1839, Shingle Springs, Ca. 95682-9998 OR
leave it off at Foothills UMC, 3301 Green Valley Dr. Rescue/Cameron
Park. JSS has a box there. WE can also accept credit card donations
through PayPal via our web site below. OR
you can pay The Auto Analyst directly after it is done, if they will
accept that condition. I very much dislike to beg; we are a very giving
organization. But we have to.
