Meet James Carter

James Carter brings a high level of compassion and commitment in all his endeavors. A talented creative writer from his college days, he was involved with his college newspaper and contributed to a community newspaper as a Sports Stringer. Having faced many struggles of growing up, he fully understands what it means to be homeless and hungry. James was homeless in Pensacola, Florida for a little over nine months living on the streets and sleeping in various places including a shelter. His philanthropic nature can be said to be from these experiences.

James’ goal is to alleviate homeless people in the U.S. giving them a place to call home both regarding space and also in their hearts. He has made his priority to guide them to helpful community transitional resources transitioning them back into regular society.
