James Davis never missed a day in the twenty-five years he worked with the Department of Defense. He calls himself a “workaholic” and blames his focused attitude for the separation from his wife. After an unfortunate series of events that caused him to experience homelessness for the first time, he has become a leader and speaks across the country on behalf of the National Homeless Coalition. He is an advocate for people to understand that “homeless” is not a type of person; rather, people find themselves “experiencing homeless”. It is an honor to share the story of one of the founding vendors of Street Sense with you all! Happy Birthday James!
