I am a resident of Placerville. I am a retired correctional officer, and I am also a volunteer at Hangtown Haven. Having been there, I’ve seen the exceptional job that the committee members do, such as providing a clean and safe living area, enforcing rules — like no alcohol or drugs, and seeing to it that individuals get to medical appointments and job interviews. I would also like to mention the outstanding support system in place. During the short time I have been there I have seen several people transition out into the workforce.
In my opinion, it would be morally and ethically wrong to not extend the use permit for Hangtown Haven. Sometimes bad things happen to good people; these people are not homeless they are houseless. They do have homes and support at Hangtown Haven, and by support I am referring to the community and the committee members.
