Help may be available for Pine Haven residents

MOSS BLUFF, LA (KPLC) - Residents of a Moss Bluff mobile home park may be able to get a little help after they were given two weeks to find a new home.

On Jan. 16, Pine Haven Mobile Home Park residents were told they had to be out of the park by the end of the month.

On Wednesday, representatives of the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury, United Way of Southwest Louisiana, City of Lake Charles and 211 will host a meeting to talk about what assistance will be available to the residents.

The meeting is set for 9:30 a.m. at the Moss Bluff Library, 261 Parish Road, Lake Charles.

Some residents told KPLC two weeks is no where near enough time to find a new park, move the trailer and get it up and running.

"A lot of us have older trailers, they're good living trailers but they are older," said Natasha Thompson. "Most trailer parks nowadays won't accept older trailers."

State law requires owners to give 10 days notice to vacate if the terms of the lease are on a month-to-month basis, like they were in Pine Haven.
