James Powers is excited to get housed today!
Home for Good: The Alliance to End Homelessness is establishing housing for James, said Pat Frey, Executive Director of Home for Good. This afternoon he met with Home for Good Ambassador Arthur Moton. Arthur, has experience in getting housed through the Home for Good program. He is guiding James to make sure he gets the necessary items, such as household and furniture for his new home.
Arthur is serving as a mentor to James and guiding his transition from homelessness to being housed. They shared their experiences as they enjoyed a cup of coffee.
Arthur expressed to James, "I now have a smart phone and you will soon know how to utilize one, he said. "I remember reading this type of technology in the Dick Tracy comic books and now it’s come to pass." James said, "Kids are so much smarter these days with their technology."
James took pride in knowing his story was front in center on the cover of the Ledger-Enquirer. He knows his story will help other homeless individuals get the opportunity to have a safe place to live.
