MEET THE HOMELESS SAINTS OF THE DESERT!




















NOW DELIVERING EMERGENCY BOTTLED WATER TO 1,000S OF DYING HOMELESS LIVING IN  PALM DESERT, INDIO, PALM SPRINGS, INDIAN WELLS & CATHEDRAL CITY

This week the homeless in California desert cities are battling 115 - to 125 degree (46 - 52 Celsius) Fahrenheit temperatures as they camp, live and work among the sands and cactus of the wealthiest zip codes in the United States.

Noontime temperatures now in July, August and September are soaring hot enough to fry eggs, dehydrate fruit and kill humans in just minutes.

Here are pictures of the Desert Saints we served with Linda Scaramella who joined the delivery team on Tuesday - homeless saints who are already doing their purgatory on earth.
Please be advised the homeless need servant team leaders in the Palm Desert and Indio area who will join the Servants of the Father of Mercy team. Please help deliver water to these poor souls. This is an urgent life and death matter. Please call now. Please call Bro. Joseph at (310) 595-4175.

Also, with a financial gift, you may wish to support the desert dying homeless with cases of water and help maintain the delivery truck with badly needed maintenance and gasoline for missions to the desert from Los Angeles and Ventura.

GRANDSON SCAMS FAMILY HOME AND MAKES GRANDMA AND GRANDPA HOMELESS – JUST ONE OF 80,000 CRAZY HOMELESS STORIES IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA & BEYOND!



This elderly couple never imagined the day they would face eviction from their California home, or that such an ordeal would allegedly be the work of their beloved grandson.

Helen and Hank Kawecki, 87 and 88, are now packing away more than 56 years' worth of things they accumulated in preparation for their Monday eviction.

They claim none of this would have happened if not for their grandson, whom they have accused of deceiving them into forfeiting their Thousand Oaks home.

"I didn't think that my grandson would do that to me. He would be the last person," Helen Kawecki said in an interview with CBS Los Angeles.

Their neighbor, Doug Emerson, told InsideEdition.com that it all started in January, when he noticed for sale signs on their lawn.

"We asked Helen, and she said, No, that's just her grandson. He's just having someone come over to look into having more money come out of it," Emerson said.

According to CBS Los Angeles, the Kawecki's were thinking about taking out a loan from the bank two years ago, when their grandson suggested he do it in his name instead. He allegedly told his grandparents that because they were retired, they would have a harder time taking out a loan.

Trusting him, they said they signed the house over to him.

"We didn't really read it," Helen Kawecki said, assuming the documents contained what her grandson had claimed.

Then, after they took out a loan for approximately $470,000, their grandson convinced them they would save money if he kept the money in his account and gave them monthly allowances, The Acorn reported.

He then told the Kaweckis that bank agents were coming by to assess the home, when real estate agents were actually showing their property to potential buyers, according to CBS Los Angeles.

Emerson said he caught on when a couple arrived at his front door, and introduced themselves as his new neighbors.

Despite filing a lawsuit against their grandson immediately after realizing what had happened, their attorney Ed Elrod explained to InsideEdition.com that even if they win the case, the resolution would not come until after they were evicted.

Plus, the Kawecki spent the last of their money on legal fees.

For the time being, the couple are getting through the devastating process with the help of their community.

Emerson said he and his wife were more than happy to let the couple stay in their guest room, and Boy Scout troops came to their home to help them pack up their belongings.

"[They] don't even know her, and are doing it [to] help somebody's grandma," Elrod told InsideEdition.com.

But, Helen Kawecki has remained distraught through the entire event.

"Helen wasn't eating or drinking," their neighbor said, including that she has been in and out of the emergency room over the last few months.

Even their lawyer has been worried for her health: "I'm very concerned for her wellbeing. Helen was so upset, because [that was] somebody that they loved and trusted."

The couple said have not spoken to their grandson, whom they called their "treasure child," since the incident.
