Texas Man Helps Homeless People In The Cold, Encourages Others To Pay It Forward

It isn’t the first time and certainly not the last when firefighter Jamie Cashion reached out to help a stranger.

Cashion ended up on the side of the road in the bitter cold, he says he fulfilled the purpose of God when he did so. I’ve been led a direction,” Cashion said. “That’s all it is. You can either believe or not believe.”

The incident happened when a mutual friend in Fort Worth asked for a ride to work, on the way, he saw a homeless man limping down the street. “And I said, ‘Hey brother, are you OK?’ And he goes, ‘No, I’m trying to get to my van.’ I said get in, it’s really, really cold, and he said I’ve got frostbite on my leg.”

Cashion gave that man a ride and later found two others out in the cold and took them to a shelter. “So when I was done with that, in my mind, I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, there’s people that stay in these conditions,’” Cashion said. “I just can’t turn a blind eye when people are freezing.”


The next morning again, Cashion was back, caring for Fort Worth’s homeless, he put out a call for help and soon people showed up with coffee, breakfast and some even took those with a frostbite to get treatment. “There’s a lot of good people out there,” Cashion said. “We’ve got some good ones in Fort Worth, Texas.”

Jamie Cashon has a heartwarming message for all of us, “The brightest stars are those that shine for others and I love that quote,” Cashion said. “It’s my job to go out and shine for these people that can’t.”
