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.
