Established in 2010


We’ve all heard the admonition to walk in someone else’s shoes. Jimmy Wayne, now a successful country singer and songwriter, knows all too well what it’s like to be homeless. So in January 2010, he took that expression to heart, embarking on a 1,700-mile walk, from Nashville to Phoenix, in the shoes of homeless youth. He has called his effort “Meet Me Halfway,” the words uttered by the generous souls who adopted Jimmy from the streets when he was 17-years-old. This Herculean effort is part of his overarching goal, forpeople to know what kids go through on the streets and in foster care programs, and to fund nonprofit programs serving homeless and at-risk youth.
