Working Actor Now Homeless in Los Angeles

“What hurts the most is the friends and family that used to be there, that when you get into this situation, everybody just chucks it up to drug abuse or bad choices…that’s not always the case. Sometimes it’s just the choice is made for you and you don’t have any choice.” ~ Dennis

“Through an avalanche of unfortunate events” is how Dennis ended up homeless in Los Angeles. Dennis is a working actor. He moved to New York City into an apartment he couldn’t afford. After three years his partner split and wiped him out financially. Dennis had to start over.

Dennis’s elderly mother is in an assisted living home. He tried to live at the facility but that did not work out. He ended up living in a broken-down car for over a year.

Dennis says homelessness used to be that person you didn’t know. Now, homelessness is your sons or your daughters, your sisters or your fathers.

About Invisible People:

Since its launch in November 2008, Invisible People 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, they’re 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 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 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.

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

  1. This man made the choices that put him in the situations he is in. There are smarter ways to live your life. He seems intelligent enough, but I think the main point is that he won’t accept any responsibility for the choices he made in the past. He has a lot to learn.

  2. Let me tell you what happened to me back in 2009 : I flew from Italy to Las Vegas in business class for a 7 days break to visit friends. Rented a car, went shopping stuff, bought clothes etc. One day at a traffic light I've seen an homeless man and looked at myself with my business class ticket,nice car rental,clean clothes..and felt so lucky. Pulled down the window and gave the man 20bucks,he felt blessed and thanked me, he actually told me that thanks to that he could leave his spot and that's what he did right away. That night I've told the story to my friends and one of them told me " you should'nt have done that,he probably spent everything on booze". What if he spent that to take a shower in a motel room for night or to eat something ? We never really know what's behind these people,there's nothing wrong in helping them. I'm glad I've found this channel.

  3. I do not mean any disrespect.I am very poor.I am suffering from colorectal disease.I don't have a home.Will anybody any generous kind person kindly help me with one million or, 5,00,000 dollars/euro please?I have a bank account. Please help me.
