Just before Christmas, I met with several homeless people at Loaves & Fishes who agreed to be interviewed on camera. They told us about the physical and emotional pain of living day to day on the streets of 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.
