It’s been a long road and there are plenty of twists and turns left, but Hangtown Haven, Placerville’s only legal camp for the homeless will soon be relocating. Since last August, the camp has been located on Broadway in Placerville, down the street from the Upper Room Dining Hall and the Community Resource Center, both of which serve the needy and the homeless in the community.
