“What hurts the most is the friends and family who were there, that when you are in this situation, everyone throws it into drug abuse or bad choices … that’s not always the case. Sometimes it’s just the choice is made for you and you have no 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 to an apartment he couldn’t afford. After three years, his partner split up and wiped him out financially. Dennis had to start over. Dennis’s elderly mother is in a nursing home. He tried to live in the facility, but it didn’t work. He ended up living in a broken down car for over a year. Dennis says the homeless were that person you didn’t know. Now, the homeless are your sons or your daughters, your sisters or your fathers. ________________________________________________ Sign up here: Invisible People: Support Website Invisible People: On Patreon: Social Media by Invisible People: Twitter By Mark Horvath: About Invisible People: Since its launch in November 2008, Invisible People has harnessed the power of video and ‘huge reach of social media to share compelling, gritty and unfiltered homeless stories from Los Angeles to Washington, DC The vlog (video blog) gets up close and personal with veterans, mothers, children, firing victims and others who are were forced to take to the streets by a variety of circumstances.
