Project Meet Me Halfway was born in Jimmy Wayne's kitchen in December 2009 when the singer was reflecting on his good fortunes.
“This guilty feeling came over me,” Wayne says. “Here I am living life. I’m comfortable. I’d been on the Brad Paisley tour for a lot of the year, and I just didn’t feel like I’d done anything to make a difference. I got to thinking, and I said, ‘What if I walk halfway across the country to raise awareness [about youth who age out of the foster care system with nowhere to go]?’”
A month later, Jimmy Wayne had layed out his plan: he would walk from Nashville, TN to Phoenix, AZ in the middle of winter.
The ProjectMMH.org website is a volunteer effort that supports country singer Jimmy Wayne's “Meet Me Halfway” project. The website serves as a resource for information about the project and the issue of foster youth who “age out” of the foster care system and face serious life problems such as homelessness and poverty.
ProjectMMH.org also organizes the Meet Me Halfway Street Teams, a national network of volunteers who work in local communities to raise awareness of Project Meet Me Halfway.
