Backstory: Once homeless himself, Mark Horvath set out in 2008 to create a vlog that chronicles the lives of veterans, mothers, children and layoff victims by giving them a platform to speak about the experience of being homeless. It's painful that we live in a country of abundance and yet we can't figure out a way to help people like this. I'm not referring to 'professional bums' as you'll hear Joesph refer to - those on drugs or alcohol and who work the system to get meals and who panhandle for their addiction. I'm talking about the homeless you will see in these interviews - articulate, often well-educated, and with hearts bigger than you can imagine despite their circumstances. Invisiblepeople.tv delivers on their mission to change the way we think about people experiencing homelessness.
