James is one of the few people you’ll meet who can say they are a San Francisco native. Moving to his own apartment has offered him his first opportunity to live independently and he feels lucky. James has also been an integral member of his community. To list a few of his jobs and volunteering, he has worked for The Boys & Girls Club, San Francisco State University, Ono’s Pizza, The San Francisco Giants, and as a crossing guard for a neighborhood school. In addition, he has been a long-standing volunteer for the San Francisco Fire Department. If you happen to catch him when he’s not working or volunteering, James is always more than willing to talk to you about his busy schedule and multiple jobs.
