Restoring Health and Hope to James


“I had lost all hope, and I don’t feel that way anymore. I’m just very blessed for everyone that’s helped me…to restore my sanity and my health and my hope.”

As a young man, James had a complete nervous breakdown that left him homeless. One morning, after years of living on the streets and in shelter, he came to SOME for breakfast. What happened next changed his life forever.
