Edward James Jr. is 56 years old. He has no permanent address and lives in a tent in the woods. James says he is lucky to have the tent, the only steady roof he has had over his head for the last two years after he lost his job in construction.

Important press release from Texas SMP and The Better Business Bureau Education Foundation:

Seniors all over Texas are receiving phone calls from individuals who want to make an appointment to come to your home and deliver a new Medical Alert that is all paid for by
