Stephanie is a homeless veteran sleeping rough in London.



Stephanie was medically discharged from the Royal Army Medical Corps after being injured in Afghanistan. She now sleeps rough on the cold streets of Central London. Stephanie says you lose everything on the streets and no one seems to care.

By the medical bandages around Stephanie’s abdomen, it was evident that she was recently in the hospital. She said he appendix burst and the hospital discharged her back to the streets. A few weeks ago I interviewed John in a London hospital [ Since that time, John has been released back to the streets, then went back into the hospital and now back sleeping rough!

Stephanie has to wait almost two weeks before being allowed into a night hostel, or what we in the U.S. call an emergency shelter.

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.
