When you support Volunteers of America Chesapeake you support individuals like James Allison.
The former resident in our Hilda M. Barg Homeless Prevention Center is now a published author! He sat down with Tom Jackman of The Washington Post to talk about his writing process, his homelessness and how he kept his faith.
“I decided to start writing when I realized I was homeless.” Mr. Allison told Mr. Jackman during the interview. “I didn’t know how long I would be homeless; I just started to chronicle my experiences.”
James has been writing since the early 1970’s and says he keeps all of his journals. He is currently working on his second book of poetry and prose called “Lifeline”
