Preface: I respectfully call on the Honorable Congressman Paul Cook to look into allegations about certain Yucca Valley Town Council member’s efforts to thwart Joshua Springs Calvary Chapel from passing out sleeping bags and blankets to veterans homeless in Yucca Valley.
Councilwoman Dawn Rowe is Cook’s Congressional Representation. Cook (Ret. Col.) is known for his genuine concern and stellar work in helping veterans, while seemingly Rowe may be working to treat Yucca Valley veterans as “untouchables” who have no place in her Yucca Valley fiefdom.
Yucca Valley – Former Army Ranger, Kevin Fish, purports that there are 1317 homeless registered veterans in the Morongo Basin. He said yesterday that by his own experience this is an accurate number. Moreover, he stated that Jerry L. Pettis Memorial Veterans Medical Center in Loma Linda has 1317 “registered” veterans living homeless in the Morongo Basin.
Note that veterans living in their vehicles are not seen on the streets.
Kevin Fish — married with four children — survived special ops mission in the Mideast to come back home and become a superstar in terms of helping bona fide homeless veterans in the Basin. Mr. Fish is unrelenting in his efforts to help these homeless veterans that have been all but forgotten by local elected officials.
His goal is to establish a barracks-style homeless shelter in an undisclosed area in the Basin, in order to help them back into the mainstream world we all routinely enjoy. Kevin is filing a fictitious business statement and working on the administration of his new organization, Vets Cruzin for a Cause. For now, his efforts are very focused on “veterans lacking the necessities to keep them warm and fed.”
Kevin Fish needs help from the good people of the Basin. Warn blankets, warm clothing and food are immediately needed. It’s easy, clear out the warm clothing not often worn from your closets and donate warn blankets. Call Kevin at (760) 368- 8715. Either drop them off, or he will promptly pick them up at your location. Food is desperately needed.
It should be noted that among any other sources, Mr. Fish and family are assisting veterans homeless from his family’s own discretionary funds and household operating expenses.
The County Food Bank that provides food each month to the communities of Monrongo Basin isn’t much help to veterans homeless because you need a verified proof of residence and income.
After reading about Kevin Fish’s efforts in the local radio station, I contacted Mr. Fish and had the opportunity to speak with him. He graciously accept warm jackets and food. By now those warm jackets are keeping veterans homeless warm.
Please help. Clean out your closets and donate them to our forgotten local veterans.
Endnote: Reportedly 50 sleeping bags were handed out to Yucca Valley homeless by the Calvary Chapel. Something is awry with some mean-spirited Yucca Valley Town Council member’s efforts to stop this? They know who they are.
