In this video [https://youtu.be/mQ2RBLLy54w], Panda gives us a tour of Seattle’s sanctioned Tent City 5 Interbay. He mentions that people don’t take the time to find out why people are homeless. Making invisible people visible is the foundation of our work so in this video we get to know a little more about Panda.
Panda heard about Seattle’s tiny villages, and because he has always wanted to participate in a community, he moved in. “Having a place to call home is important,” he adds. Panda wanted to be involved in something good that helps people who suffer from chronic homelessness.
Panda is disabled. He cannot work. As a single dad, he raised two children. After they grew up and moved out, Panda no longer qualified for Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher and ended up on the streets.

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.
