Homeless Issues #95

What Ever Happened to the “HangTown Haven” Org.??

Community Haven continues to be very active after the closure of Hangtown  Haven.  The 501 C 3 organization works to find ways to aid people without houses in our community.  The Haven maintains a home for women who need shelter, provides the utilities and food and asks whose who have some resources to contribute to the rent.  The Haven supports the Nomadic Shelter program by serving as its fiduciary agent and helping with the shelters volunteer support and expenses.  Haven people also serve on the. County’s “Opportunity Knocks” team addressing issues of homelessness in the County.
Community Haven people remain active on the CoC (Continuum of Care) the County, State, and Federal organizations on homeless issues and partner with others like JSS on homeless issues.

Thank you for hanging in there!

JSS is in dire need of clothing items for distribution to our homeless population.
Colored “T” shirts sizes Large and X-Large. (No white ones please).
Jeans or dark colored work pants sizes 32”-33”- and 34” waist size..
Men’s white cotton socks, 6-12 size packages. We have plenty for women now.
These items are in great demand as the warm weather descends upon us.
You may drop these items off at Foothills UMC @ 3301 Green Valley Rd. Rescue/Cameron Park. OR I’ll come pick them up if you conduct a “Clothing Drive for those who have the very least.”
WE are out of jeans and “T” shirts. This is critical for JSS..

How about This!

“re Visions,” Vintage store and a home décor emporium establishment did the following: …….  “I had a sale last week at the store that if someone brought in a pair of jeans, they would receive 20% off of their entire purchase.  Well, we got jeans.  LOTS of jeans. “  ….. “ Happy to do it!  I’m proud of our community for stepping up like this”………………………… Hugs, Katie Chaney.”

You gotta go there. It is in the Cameron Park shopping center next to the Wells Fargo Bank, where Colonel Sanders Kentucky Fried Chicken faces Cameron Park Dr., (my favored eating establishment.) or 3450 Palmer Dr., Cameron Park Dr.

JSS is just a little group among the giant non-profits. We cannot be a part of the “big picture” of large non-profits like those involved with “A day of giving.” We do not have any paid employees. If you have $$$ left over to give,,,,,,,, please send them our way.
