Closing Placerville's 'Haven' will increase homeless problem

Re "Placerville closes 'Haven' chapter" (Page A1, Nov. 15): This article talked about a homeless sanctuary called the Hangtown Haven being shutdown in Placerville. I can't believe they are getting rid of a place like this. I feel that it did a lot more good than bad. The residents are complaining of homeless being on the streets of the town, but they don't understand that the people from the Haven are not the ones living on the street. Getting rid of the Haven will only make this problem worse because all those that were living there will now be forced onto the street. I hope they end up relocating, if not expanding, this program. It really does help those who need it most.
