Gary and Clifford Koekoek are 84 year old twins and are Vietnam veterans. The pair are currently homeless in Fair Oaks, California. They had a beautiful house in Fair Oaks, that they unfortunately lost to the bank due to a predatory loan. They have a fascinating life story, including living in Europe during World War II, immigrating to the United States with their families, almost making it on the Ed Sullivan Show, and being bombed in the Vietnam War. The pair has no surviving local family. Please consider helping these wonderful members of our community be able to afford to find a place to call home.

We are working with a lawyer to set up a trust and Gary and Clifford are getting into VA housing. If you were hoping to donate, we ask that you donate to a local veteran's fund and take some time out of your day to talk to homeless person and find out their story! Have a great day and we will continue to post updates until Gary and Clifford are settled into their new housing.
