This one wrecked me. I was crossing a street in Salt Lake City and saw Sergei. I asked him if he would like some socks. He responded "I don't have any money", which was the first sign Sergei was new to the streets. I just didn't know how new.

Today is Sergei's 18th birthday. Today is also his first night homeless.

Many of you have asked for more details. I am sorry but I became emotional and didn't get much information. Too me, just the look on his face was enough to feel his pain and get some understanding.

Many of you also asked how you can help. Please support homeless youth organizations like Safe Place [http://bit.ly/dD3G8C].

I have worked with homeless youth before in Hollywood, but this was my first time with InvisiblePeople.tv. This year's road trip I will be going out with a few homeless youth outreach teams. It's an important story that needs to be told. I just am not sure I am ready. Today my heart was broken.

Please support Safe Place, Covenant House, and similar organizations helping troubled youth. PLEASE!

Your voice can help end homelessness. If we do not fix the affordable housing crisis, homelessness will continue to get worse. Click here https://invisiblepeople.tv/getinvolved to tweet, email, call, or Facebook your federal and state legislators to tell them ending homelessness and creating more affordable housing is a priority to you.

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.
