Mike White, president of Client Focused Media, has a fervent determination to bring awareness to the city’s homeless epidemic. He is taking a stand and motivating other leaders in the community to join him.

White says he was inspired to take action after an encounter with a homeless man that he knew as a previous client. “He was a chef at a local restaurant with a wife, kids, and a nice home.
