Santa Monica homeless man used to work as an accountant.

When I walked up on Larry he had all his clothes out drying in the sun. He was extremely nice and wanted to make sure I was comfortable. He rearranged a few items on the grass so I could sit. When everything you own can fit into a medium-sized suitcase that bag becomes your life. Looking at life through the eyes of a homeless person everything changes. In Larry’s mind, he eats like a millionaire although he is surviving of off food that has been thrown away. Larry has kind of a neat idea. He suggests that the city put little racks next to the trash cans where food, beverages, clothes, or anything valuable could be left for the homeless. A few times Larry talked about his drug use. Living on the streets is horrible and anyone would want to escape reality. I found it interesting that Larry was the second homeless accountant I spoke to that day. Larry speaks a few times about the homeless supporting each other, yet when I lived on the streets I found it to be the exact opposite.

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, theyíre on, 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.

Invisible People 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 canít ignore. The vlog puts into context one of our nationís most troubling and prevalent issues through personal stories captured by the lens of Mark Horvath ñ its founder ñ and brings into focus the pain, hardship and hopelessness that millions face each day. One story at a time, videos posted on shatter the stereotypes of Americaís 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.

Invisible People is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the way we think about people experiencing homelessness.

  1. One thing homelessness taught me is ALL DRINKS but water should be avoided like the plague!!

    Not just carrying them, though that is one BIG issue – they don’t stay cold or carbonated which means they won’t taste good anyway!

    But you don’t need such shit in your DIET – especially when homeless!

  2. If he’s going to be 62 “next Sunday” he can damn RETIRE and collect SS after 20 years working!

    And, how the hell does someone collect $1,00/month and remain homeless?

    He can take that SDI anywhere in America and rent a home THERE!

  3. These white homeless people if they really can't make it in America they shall move to asia where they can get the white privilege, become English teacher do some modeling and get involved in plenty of other lucrative activities. For real move to China or Vietnam or Thailand…

  4. I don't think he's still homeless if he knew about eating like a king. That means some sort of stamina and he's sly enough to sleep where he wouldn't be found.

  5. That's what made me apathetic in a career as well, when you work with people who lie to get ahead and they're not even very good at their jobs and the higher ups know and still promote them! It's like they want their employees to be backstabbing heartless a-holes! You just lose interest in doing a good job. Hope he had a great birthday.

  6. This Guy arrogant, smart, intelligent, don't buy he's actually homeless, I'm only 2 min's into this ,he could be half homeless,or By choice, maybe he's saving cash,I have been homeless

  7. He's lucky Corona viris wasn't around 11 years ago.
    He's eatting from near rubbish bins.
    $220 a month is what he gets.hes not the full definition of homeless/poor.
    He talks about Hollywood this and that.
    His friend gets $1000 a month,
    He looks like he's still a accountant
