Along with volunteers from the Upper Room and New Beginnings, Placerville Public Works has cleaned up almost 10,000 lbs. of garbage from homeless encampments in 2021.

The homeless population have a legal right to reside on public property because of the monumental Martin v. Boise case. The City is actively working with El Dorado County, who can help with resourcing and working towards a solution of halting continued growth of the homeless population in Placerville, while serving and helping the current population in need.

Thank you to all the volunteers who pitch in to help, it's clear you love Placerville and your neighbors as much as we do!
