James Powers is walking away from the streets where he has been for more than two years and into a new and more stable world — or at least that’s the hope. The 68-year-old Columbus homeless man moved into a rental house in the North Highland area on Thursday. Led by Home for Good: The Alliance to End Homelessness, a United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley agency, the city is attempting to address seven large homeless camps by finding housing for those willing to accept the help and terms, which include case management. Over the last three weeks, the group has focused on the warehouse loading dock at the corner of Third Avenue and 18th Street known as “The Ledge.” It is the second homeless camp that has been addressed since late last year.
