The Day Shelter, housed within Christlike Services at 7500 Green Valley Road, will close today, in conjunction with the closing of the Nomadic Shelter, a press release from the city of Placerville stated.

“The city of Placerville and El Dorado County express our appreciation to the owners of Christlike Services for their assistance during the winter months to provide shelter from the weather,” the release stated.

The city and county partnered on several programs to focus on the “homeless in crisis,” while also engaging the challenges presented by the habitual transient offender population.

“With the closing of the Nomadic and Day Use shelters, we will continue to support the outreach efforts of our community non-profit organizations, churches and other public services. We are committed to engage this challenge by balancing outreach and enforcement efforts when dealing with habitual transient offenders often afflicted with mental health and drug and alcohol dependencies. This will include connecting those in crisis with available resources and aggressively focusing on unlawful behavior such as illegal camping, panhandling and other criminal activity impacting our community’s quality of life. With the assistance of volunteers and land owners we will continue to work together to clean up those impacted by illegal camping,” the release stated.

The city and county encouraged those looking to help the homeless to donate and volunteer with churches and non-profits that have programs to assist the homeless. “Giving cash to the homeless on the streets enables the voluntary homeless to remain homeless. They are far better served by the structured services provided by community non-profit organizations and churches,” the release stated.

The city of Placerville and El Dorado County plans to continue to work in the area to identify programs and opportunities to assist the homeless.
