Homeless Issue #87

Many have asked, “What are the Guidelines for guests on a shelter night?” Each guest agrees to the following. These guidelines have evolved over the years from the winter of 2009-2010 when the Nomadic Shelter kicked in at Cold Springs CC and Foothills UMC, 6 years ago. Year two, Green Valley CC, Solid Rock Foundation Center and Federated joined us. Let us keep it going!

SHELTER GUEST GUIDELINES
November 2015-April 2016
  1. There is absolutely no violence, weapons, sex, drugs or alcohol allowed on the premises.

 

  1. All guests must allow their belongings to be checked as they check into shelter for evening; only personal necessities will be allowed to stay with them. The shelter monitors have the right to lock up all items they deem unsafe or inappropriate.

 

  1. Smoking is allowed only in designated areas & times, cigarette butts must be put in can.

 

  1. If a guest leaves the property for any reason they may not return to the shelter that night.

 

  1. Men and women may only sleep in sleeping rooms, designated for each sex: ie, men in one area and women in another area.

 

  1. Guests need to check-in at the appointed spot at the shelter on the bus, no drive ups unless approved by shelter leaders.

 

  1. Guests not meeting these guidelines could be asked to leave for the night.

  1. Each time a guest signs the rooster at the host shelter for the night they agree to these rules.

Failure to leave when asked by shelter monitors or for any serious problems may result in a call to the EDC Sheriff’s office or Placerville police.
……………………………………………………

No Nomadic Shelter for the El Dorado county homeless citizens on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and only two Saturday nights per month. Yes, in this below 40 degree weather. In the first few nights we had 22 guests in the Shelter, we had 27 last Monday the 9th. .

In my opinion, we and this county should feel guilty! Give the Nomadic Shelter a space and they will provide for its management.

A 3 hour shift in an evening, fit to your schedule, and in your area is all that is asked. Cold Springs CC in Cold Springs; Federated Church in Placerville; Solid Rock Foundation in Diamond Springs; Foothills UMC in Cameron Park; Green Valley CC on Missouri Flats Rd. all can use your help and award you with the knowledge that you have participated in caring for God’s children who have no place to rest their heads.  Call the church nearest to you, or contact Carole Smith ,., 530-644-6018 … mcs4850@att.net … Or contact Pastor Frank Gates … 530-409-3940 … Or e-mail me …JobsShelterOrg@gamil.com … I’ll connect you.

We want to welcome Holy Trinity Catholic Church into our Nomadic Shelter circle by way of working with Foothills UMC in the Cameron Park area. Holy Trinity is a long time supporter and participant in the Upper Room, SHARE Food Closet and other community-oriented organizations, as well as the clothing distribution at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Placerville and other community oriented projects. They are expanding their service by participating with Job’s Shelters of the Sierra (JSS) in serving the homeless population in El Dorado County.

The Department of Housing & Urban Development [HUD]
The Department of Housing & Urban Development [HUD] just released their notice of $1.9 billion in funding available nationally to the homeless service providers [called Continuum of Cares or CoC]  Apply by November 20, 2015.  Each CoC must submit a detailed application explaining the homeless services they provide and receive points based on their application.  Based on the points they receive for each answer, they are either awarded funding or they are declined.  It is a highly competitive process and even a loss of a half point can mean the difference between being funded or not.  This year HUD included a question worth 2 points regarding “how the community is preventing the criminalization of homeless people as well as furthering fair housing” means that a community potentially could lose federal funding for their homeless programs if they continue to enforce anti-homeless ordinances, including anti-camping ordinances.  The HUD development comes in the wake of the federal Department of Justice [DOJ] issuing a statement of interest in a lawsuit brought by homeless people in Boise, Idaho challenging the constitutionality of the Boise anti-camping ordinance.  DOJ stated that “unless a community has enough housing, anti-camping ordinances violate the 8th amendment of the U.S. Constitution as cruel and unusual punishment and are misguided public policy.”

El Dorado County, CoC, is controlled by the
“CAPITOL LETTER CITIZENS” that has little to no regard for the single “lower case citizens” of El Dorado County, and has contracted, about a year or more ago, with an organization/facilitator outside of El Dorado County. In the past each Supervisor had a representative at CoC meetings, and the CoC was “staffed” by volunteers (at no fee.) from Citizens of El Dorado County…………. The persons or group that pays the facilitator rules!

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?” The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.” “Son.” the man said, “Don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t possibly make a difference!” After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up a starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said, “I made a difference to that one.”

Homeless issue #85 ….. Sept. 2015

U. S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals:  “…… different police officers interpreted the laws in various ways, making it “incompatible with the concept of an evenhanded administration of the law to the poor and to the rich that is fundamental to a democratic society.”
………………………………………………………

Homeless “Pigeon Holes.”
So many, that societies will never be able to plug them up. 

A. The mentally challenged who fight demons daily, large and small, real and perceived, who do not have anyone willing or able to take care of their basic needs, such as shelter and food to eat..
 
B. The addicted to alcohol and legal and illegal drugs, escaping from reality because they can’t deal with the realities of living in the general society. This starts at a very young age as they are not taught accountability, cause and effect, responsibility, and a good work ethic. A good test for this is to learn what jobs they held before age 16. A parents or guardians job.  And who do not have anyone willing or able to take care of their basic needs, such as shelter and food to eat..

C. Just out of prison with one or more “sub-pigeon holes” attached. And who do not have anyone willing or able to take care of their basic needs, such as shelter and food to eat..
 

D. Those unskilled who do not have the opportunity or ability to learn wage-earning skills. And who do not have anyone willing or able to take care of their basic needs, such as shelter and food to eat..
 
E. The older persons who is viewed as too old to learn a new trade, a possible burden to one’s business and might be “set in their ways.” And do not have anyone willing or able to take care of their basic needs, such as shelter and food to eat..
 
F. The 54+year old who lost everything and was deemed “too knowledgeable” in his field to be trained for a younger, growing company and was a past competitor, (In my case) And who do not have anyone willing or able to take care of their basic needs, such as shelter and food to eat..
 
G. The transient, wandering explorer, “Hobo” of past years, who is an adventurer in their mind. They’re always looking over the next hill.
 
A & B will always be with us. Hospitalization, compassionate incarceration, continued tailored professional mentoring and care would be the only solution, and would need to suit each individuals needs. And this is not about to happen.

C, D, E & F are there for us to uplift spiritually and materially. Giving them a job for long/short term with minimal or above wages gives dignity and allows some sense of independence, “Christ Like Services” (530) 622-1267. CLS has a “Free of Liability” form available. Many have used their services and changed their view homeless persons.

I’m sure I’ll hear from some of you because I left out a point you want to make. Please fill me in.

Job’s Shelters of the Sierra (JSS) servers this varied population in El Dorado County, as others do, and have for over 12 years. The Upper Room comes to mind, and we pray that individuals, cities, and County governments recognize that these groups of people are here with us now. Whatever your religion, philosophical spirit, gut feeling is saying, there is a place for you to not only think and pray about it, but do something about it. Volunteer!

The Nomadic Shelter is starting up for another year. You, your group, your church, contact Pastor Frank Gates at 530-409-3940 or Carole Smith at 530-644-6018, and volunteer for something.

Homeless Issues #84

Following by James King on Aug 06, 2015

In an effort to erase signs of homelessness, some cities have passed laws that prohibit people from sleeping outside or in their cars. Now, the Department of Justice is getting involved.

The DOJ said on Thursday that laws that try to criminalize homelessness are unconstitutional, a sign that it may follow up with civil rights lawsuits against cities that have criminalized sleeping-while-homeless.

The national average of homeless people who have no place to sleep is more than 40 percent because of overcrowding in shelters. Those who don’t get a bed are forced to sleep in places like parks, sidewalks, and cars. In Los Angeles, for example, there are about 11,933 beds in the city’s homeless shelters for roughly 54,000 homeless people, according to a 2014 report from the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty.

Since 2011, the number of cities that have city-wide bans on camping in public has increased by 60 percent, according to the report. Additionally, 81 cities have bans on sleeping in cars, an increase from 37 in 2011.

In a statement of interest filed with the U.S. District Court in Idaho, the DOJ said Thursday that laws that make sleeping illegal violate the Eighth Amendment, which protects people from cruel and unusual punishment. “Sleeping is a life-sustaining activity—i.e., it must occur at some time in some place” the statement says. “If a person literally has nowhere else to go, then enforcement of the anti-camping ordinance against that person criminalizes her for being homeless.”

……………………………………………………………………

U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturns L.A. ban on homeless living in vehicles. We should take notice and act accordingly in El Dorado County.

…………………………………………………………………….

The word “Citizen” as used in human compassion, respect, and practice.

“Citizen” or group of “Citizens” complaining about another, lower case “citizen” or group of “citizens.” Yes we do have that problem within our communities, and the Authorities have to scratch their heads and attempt to make the most of the situation. But yes, things get different when the capital letter “Citizen” complains about the lower case “citizen.” Both were born, raised, educated, and spent their money in the local stores of El Dorado County. What criteria were used to determine if one is a Capital letter “Citizen,” or a lower case “citizen” with capital letter treatment and power or lower case treatment with no powers We who serve the homeless community are confronted with this much of the time. What to do when the police appear on the scene and indicate that they want us out of the public parking lot because we attract the lower case citizen. Or what do we do when they “encourage” owners of private property to not allow lower case citizens to gather on their property to receive “hand outs,” Or they ignore the fact that the homeless are citizens; we have to determine, “Who makes that decision?” City Council, County Supervisors? And where is that line? When did I go from being a lower case citizen to being a capital letter citizen? And you, from capital to lower case citizen? Influential people in our community who help local politicians get elected, have far more power than those without houses (who have essentially none).  However, some of the influential folk may have the same addictions and even the same mental illnesses and may conduct themselves in equally unsavory ways.

Homeless Issue #83

Ron, this year since the Shelter ended, JSS has provided tents and/or sleeping bags to 76 homeless persons.  This is amazing! This information shows what a valuable resource JSS is and that it is only accomplished through donations from people who care.

The other Churches in the Nomadic Shelter did not continue to contribute, but JSS provided some continuum of services after the shelter ended. Three days a week. JSS is like a lifeline to the homeless. JSS is there 12 months a year, shelter or no shelter!Christ Like Services, Green Valley Saturday Cafe and FAITH are the only other resources available to single homeless persons on an annual basis that I am personally aware of.
Just my two cents worth!
Jan

Thank you Jan. And God has blessed us all, the “givers” and the “receivers.”

Speaking of the Nomadic Shelter and the up-coming “winter months,” planning has begun, and the following notice, is very important. PLEASEattend.

There will be a fundraiser to generate the money that is necessary to get the Nomadic Shelter up and running and to also keep it going for the allotted time. Now recognizing “that a camel is a horse put together by a committee,” the committee can’t, or did not inform me, after many requests, of when, how much, etc. it will take place. I understand that it will be held at the Federated Church.

Remember to attend and support this effort when and if you hear about it. You can send a check to the JSS address below with a note that the donation is for the Nomadic Shelter.

Homeless Issues #81

CRC, Only Kindness, JSS, Job’s Shelters of the Sierra, and Community Haven (formally Hangtown Haven) have now joined together in partnership to provide a home for five homeless men and women in El Dorado County. It is located in Diamond Springs and has been the home leased by Community Haven for Partners in Care and Marshall Hospital for housing homeless who needed minor medical care. Since that contract has recently expired, Community Haven has been concerned that the home would be lost and could no longer be used for the homeless. But the new agreement allows them to continue the lease and give five homeless residents a place to live. Each partner has the following responsibility:

 

  • Community Haven will lease the home and maintain it while providing food from the Food Bank and maintain finances
  • CRC (Only Kindness) will provide appropriate residents as openings occur
  • JSS will utilize the garage for storing clothes, tents and sleeping bags  for distribution

 

CRC is not the exclusive provider of residents. If anyone else has a suggestion for a resident and openings exist, they can be admitted.

 

This partnership is a landmark advance in helping the homeless in our county because this is the first time that three non-profits have combined into one organization to help the homeless year round. It is planned that this partnership will continue beyond the Diamond Springs facility and will be available to the county as the only experienced facility and program providers in the community. Each of the partners has its own experience and expertise that will make the combination successful in providing the items our homeless community needs.

 

Success of this venture is not guaranteed and needs financial support from the community. Residents will be asked to contribute, but donations from the community will be required to meet all of the costs

 

Hopefully this will be expanded and will be the road to a continuing and successful homeless program in our county.

 

Women helping women:

Women working on the front line, up front with social action attempting to give those women who by whatever reason have found themselves homeless, destitute, and looked upon as not worthy of our societies abundance. Here are three women that defy that view of community involvement of “not me.” These ladies provide the only clean undergarments that these “ladies of the street” get. They provide the “women’s touch” to women’s problems.” Besides the undergarments, these ladies know what is needed and what can be substituted for items that other ladies take for granted as well as the hygiene and yes social appearance needs. The most important item is the roll of toilet paper. That roll is the only thing they have that is sanitary and clean. It is used as the necessary nose tissue for that runny nose, as well as the only clean thing they have to cover the cut they might endure while living on the street. That toilet paper, folded over and over again substitutes for the pad they used to have available, and then the original use is just one of the necessary convinces.   Our JSS ladies have learned by experiencing and listening to the ladies of our homeless population. Patent leather is out. Durability is in. Light and colorful clothing gets dirty fast and tends to make them stand out as homeless. However it is fun for shot interludes sometimes. Yes, there also are ladies who are mistaken as “social volunteers” who in fact are homeless but keep their appearance clean and presentable. Our goal is to make that available to all homeless women.

Homeless Issues: Emergency

Homeless Issues: Emergency

JSS is loosing its storage unit. Storage is essential to serving the homeless. We can not pay rent but are looking for a place to construct a 10X14 foot, lockable, storage unit (or to use one already built) that would be accessible to our van drivers who distribute clothing, etc. to the homeless community three days a week.

We would keep it very clean. All of our drivers are, polite, understanding, and pleasant people (that’s them in the pictures below) and would use the storage only during the daylight hours. We must have the unit constructed and moved into within 30 days; 60 at most. Can you help?

After 9 years of giving, we are now in need of asking for help. Thank you for thinking of us. JSS is so very blessed by your donations. It is important for you to know that JSS shares your blessings

Yes, $5.7 million for a homeless facility by El Dorado County for single dogs, cats and other four footed animals. Nothing for two legged, single, human animals, related in some way to the County, to persons in the County, or where born in the County. Is something wrong with this picture????

“Be not afraid of being slowly, be afraid of standing still” (Chinese Proverb). 120 different homeless persons used the Nomadic Shelter this past winter. JSS has registered 125 persons who were given a tent and/or a sleeping bag within the last 12 months. JSS supplied over $6,000.00 in tents and bags alone; and not including our other expenses. Yes, we need your help. Please consider our two-legged friends, the homeless population of El Dorado County.

Your support helps persons who are without a place to lay their heads, fill their belly, have wearable, clean clothing, and have a small sense of  being thought of, you have to remember, “A free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular” (Adlai Stevenson). And we are unpopular with county government because we attempt to provide for the citizens who are “the least of these our brethren.”

Around 2009 when Art Edwards was President of  United Outreach, , and El Dorado county turned over Perks Court to United Outreach for service to the homeless population of ED County, JSS was invited to use the unused “storage building” as a place that JSS could store the donations that they were given to distribute to the homeless. A written agreement between JSS and Art Edwards, as President of United Outreach to allow JSS to use that building was executed. JSS refurbished the building, put in electricity, repaired all leaks and made it useable. JSS also was one of the main volunteer organizations that made Perks Court useful. When United Outreach changed its administration, JSS was told to leave. That building has remained unused except as a “dump it all” storage shed to this day. How sad! Over $8,000.00 in storage fees could have gone to serving the homeless population.

Presently, JSS pays $114.00 per month for a 10X15 storage unit. As our donations are not now covering that expense because of “special needs” purchases, post office costs, and what other small administration costs we do have, we need to ask for financial assistance. Our four vans are out every week ministering to our homeless community. 

JSS is so very blessed by your donations. It is important for you to know that JSS shares your blessings

Homeless Issues #79

The Nomadic Shelter Ends.
God bless those churches and those volunteers who participated and made it happen regardless of the County’s disregard for those persons in our community who can’t “pay the rent” to live in El Dorado County.

We all commend the following churches that gave of themselves to help those in our community who do not have a safe, warm place to sleep during our winter months. Thank you to Green Valley CC, Solid Rock Foundation, Cold Springs CC, Federated Church, Foothills UMC, New Hope Church for 2 nights a month and  Cameron Park Christian and Rolling Hills for 1 night a month.

We also want to thank those who are homeless, yet gave of their time and efforts in assisting the volunteers in managing the Nomadic Shelter in the different shelter locations. They are examples of  the “good citizens” of El Dorado County.
……………………………….
The New Criminals in Placerville City:
Yes about 60 to 80+ in all: Persons who have mental issues and no legal construction to sleep in are now violating ordinances of the city and are now branded as “criminals.”

Foster children recently put out of the Foster Care programs are now criminals if they can’t find a place to sleep in a legal location. They are now acting against ordinances of the city and are now branded as “criminals.” Early releases from prisons are now acting against ordinances of the city and are now branded as “criminals.” Again!

Long time citizens of El Dorado County who, for various reasons are poor ,  without  a “home.” are now violating  ordinances of the city and are now branded as “criminals.”

Physically disabled persons who do not have a home to go into are now acting against ordinances of the city and are now branded as “criminals.”

A tent on public land makes you a criminal, as does a gathering in a “public” park.
And yes, those who abuse alcohol and drugs, the same label. “Christian” El Dorado County is only for the rich and those who can pay the price to live here whether or not you were born here. Those are harsh words, but true.
…………………………………………..

Job’s Shelter of the Sierra (JSS) Van
will be out each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday stopping where homeless persons can be found, providing the clothing you have donated for them. Practical clean clothing, tooth brushes, clean socks, the all important rolls of toilet paper are provided; and to those with special requests, razors, wipes, adult diapers, etc. are given. JSS in partnership with you is able to provide these items. Churches and organizations who can’t, for some reason, host the homeless during the winter months, can collect donations of clean clothing to be distributed to the “least of these our brothers and sisters.” Money for our Tent/Bag distribution is so very important.

Each Tent/Bag combination cost JSS about $50.00 each. We give out over 100 of these combinations, each year. Each person gets one bag and one tent within a 12 month period. The bookkeeping in itself can get confusing. Contact JSS at the e-mail address below. JSS can’t do it alone. Collected clothing can be dropped off at Foothills UMC, 3301 Green Valley Rd., Rescue/Cameron Park for pick up.

“Theory of Change.” The county committee on evaluating the homeless issues in El Dorado County has met again and is still stalling the issues. This “Three Phase” evaluation is going to take two to three years to complete. Placer County did it all within a year. El Dorado County is again far behind other counties in providing for their homeless citizens. It’s just “Blah, Blah, Blah and no action.

El Dorado County Supervisors, aren’t you ashamed?

Please, three Compassionate Supervisors step up!

“Partners in Care” is ending their relationship with Marshall Hospital and is looking for 5 responsible homeless persons who have some form of income to share the now vacated “Partners in Care” house. Contact Art Edwards @ 530-622-1103
