James Fitzhugh - Homeless in Sacramento

I met up with James Fitzhugh at Friendship Park on the campus of Loaves & Fishes last month. His story reinforced what I’ve known and seen for a long time: anyone can become homeless. James went from middle class to homeless very quickly.

James held senior management jobs at several high tech companies. Later he even managed a ski school. He was well off and enjoying life. And he had a compassionate side, once helping a friend who had a serious alcohol addiction.

James describes his state of mind being homeless, what it does to his soul, and how today he’s trying to make a comeback.
