There’s nothing that says “San Francisco” to out-of-towners like the Golden Gate Bridge and cable cars. [...] locals can add a couple of dismaying icons to that roster — homeless tents and panhandlers. [...] most of those departures have been voluntary — many homeless people who were interviewed after they relocated said they left because the rains came and a law enforcement army guarding against terrorist acts descended on the Embarcadero.

The demonstration took place on the Embarcadero, just across the street from a fenced-off party venue called Super Bowl City. In normal times, Super Bowl City is a premier public space, along the city’s popular waterfront, with a windswept plaza and a children’s playground, and two blocks of Market Street.

More than half a million people in the U.S. are homeless. Sturdy tarps, kind words, thoughtful clothing donations, and advocacy can help this winter.

For the thousands of people who are sleeping on the streets or are in temporary accommodation, winter is one of the hardest times of the year.

Activists upset with the NFL hoopla sweeping San Francisco plan to set up a homeless tent camp near the carnival-like Super Bowl City along the Embarcadero Wednesday afternoon and warned that hundreds of protesters are expected to participate. The convergence of the official shelter with the protest tent shelter spotlights the debate that has built for weeks over how the city’s chronic homeless problem should be handled as Super Bowl 50 and all ...

San Francisco, which shares in Super Bowl festivities this week, is like many cities in wrongly criminalizing homelessness, says Vijay Das

Team de Blasio is supposedly doing a top-to-bottom review of homeless policy. You’ll know it was real if it comes up with something like the new report from The Doe Fund. Doe is one of the best cit...

Introduction
We rally, inspire, and equip others by curating stories that move people to action. We network individuals, brands, and organizations to change the way we think about people experiencing homelessness.

Since its launch in November 2008, InvisiblePeople.tv has leveraged the power of video and the massive reach of social media to share the compelling, gritty, and unfiltered stories of homeless people from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. The vlog (video blog) gets up close and personal with veterans, mothers, children, layoff victims and others who have been forced onto the streets by a variety of circumstances. Each week, their on InvisiblePeople.tv, and high traffic sites such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, proving to a global audience that while they may often be ignored, they are far from invisible.

InvisiblePeople.tv goes beyond the rhetoric, statistics, political debates, and limitations of social services to examine poverty in America via a medium that audiences of all ages can understand, and can’t ignore. The vlog puts into context one of our nation’s most troubling and prevalent issues through personal stories captured by the lens of Mark Horvath - its founder - and brings into focus the pain, hardship and hopelessness that millions face each day. One story at a time, videos posted on InvisiblePeople.t shatter the stereotypes of America’s homeless, force shifts in perception and deliver a call to action that is being answered by national brands, nonprofit organizations and everyday citizens now committed to opening their eyes and their hearts to those too often forgotten.
