Video Description (from Youtube)
Tony moved in with his uncle to be a caregiver. When his uncle died Tony tried to stay in that apartment, but was only given the option of a hostel. Tony has been homeless now for 25 years.

When I first met Tony he told me he liked being homeless. I asked him if it was always that way, because no one starts off liking living on the streets. People simply give up and adapt to sleeping rough. Tony responded that at first he did try and get off the streets, but after fighting the system, he just adapted to homelessness and made the best of it, including walking around Great Britain twice. As cool as that may be, the system failed Tony. No one should have to experience homelessness for even a short period of time.

Tony did confirm that police have started to move people on with the Olympics right around the corner. He said he used to have tea with them and now they bring sniffing dogs to roust rough sleepers.

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 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.

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 InvisiblePeople.tv 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.
