In this video [], 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.

Here is the Facebook page for Tiny Cabins 5 if you’d like to contact Panda and learn more about their community

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, 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 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.


This homeless man came to Seattle’s Tent City 5 to find a home. #buy #homes in the #USA #realestate

  • A nation's people are struggling and still the bloody government wants to spend on war, immigrant etc.

  • Share the gospel to them that Jesus Christ came and died for our sins that if we all believe in him we all can be saved, this what it all about in these times because the kingdom of God is at hand the end of the world ,it don't matter if you are poor, because it's the poor God usually deals with not the rich and proud, being poor is not a sin it's a blessing it's time in life when you have nothing when you are dispised and oppressed by the rich and proud, but that's just the way it have to be in these times when the devil is under control of the rich those who have power because of money. But as bad as you being poor, is the point where God is there only hope through Christ Jesus, let them know that God still loves them and Jesus is the only way truth and life to salvation no other way, as bad as there situations is if they have God through Christ Jesus they have everything already. Because all these things in the world today don't matter more than Christ these things you see and akin for is just for a time a short time. Death is at hand and life also ,it all depends which master you choose the winnings side which is through Christ Jesus or the losing side Satan, who is working through the rich proud and evil that's why many today are suffering because evil exalted it self but that is just for a time if your put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ and follow him ,you will have eternal life and will live a better life than the rich man today in the second life if you choose to take up his cross and follow Christ, he is the only hope to them. Because they are on the last gap at least let them know the truth and believe it so if they might die today or tomorrow they might have eternal life because the end is near the kingdom of God is at hand repent before its to late because hell is real and if your die in your sins the lake of fire you going be in, it don't matter whether you are rich or poor free or bond. It's all base on the master you choose to follow while you were living on earth,but i will have you know that if you choose to follow Christ: take up his cross and destroy your life you will gain your soul and find your life and escape the lake of fire to come . That's why Christ said blessed are the poor for there's is the kingdom of God they shall inherit the kingdom of God . I am also poor but am hardly needy of any because i have God and that's everything. And I am not ashamed. No one should be poor and die in there sins because Christ have already came to save us from our sins that if we believe in him we can be saved. And if you did not know the truth or you are confused from the lies and fables in this world ,hear it is if your read this what I tell you . You can also find it in the king James bible. This is a message that saves if you believe it. And this matters more than any thing in the world that God send his only begotten son to die for us that if we believe in him we can be saved ,you would know onless you choose to believe his gospel and follow him. Repent before its to late . Share the word of God to the poor God already know there situations and want them to make right choices because the end is near . God bless all of you who read this and do what is right. Peace and love to you.

UGH UGH UGH, if he was here before he went homless I don't mind, just can't be paying for every other state's issue. ugh, all the time I see on reddit , people asking about moving here, without job thinking 600 a month can get them downtown seattle with a good paying job that they can find asap wtf people wtf

  • I am sorry but elected officials and the city of Seattle are funding TENTS? This is unacceptable. The money should be creating real roofs over these people heads… And they are expected to do some kind of work for this? Bless your Heart, Mark for reaching out and doing this work. And the people out there homeless, they are so kind — not one of them deserve to be "homeless", no one does.

  • Hey Mark, if you happen to come to Florida, I would love to tell my story.

  • How many times do I need to say I need help I am a young woman, and I am not Lazy.

  • How amazing!! I’ve been toying with this exact same idea out here in Phoenix area. One episode -one homeless person. We take him to eat and we hear his or her story etcetc …I’m so glad I’ve found your Channel! You have motivated me so much here! Maybe u can help me with some much needed guidance while I develop mine? I’m willing to help u in return any way I can

  • You should teach this guy to exploit the homeless, just like you do.

  • Awesome. I love his hat. It looks great on him.

  • A pleasant gentleman. I do hope he can get back in his feet and a new home in the future.

    Homeless people are some of the nicest people you can meet and anyone can lose their home if circumstances take a turn for the worse. Like losing their job for some reason.

  • Please, PLEASE listen to why this man is homeless starting at 2:06. Lost section 8, gets social security but cannot make the rent… CANNOT MAKE THE RENT!!! 44% of the homeless work, and many others have income such as social security, yet people cannot make it in the markets today. If the housing is not affordable without subsidization, IT ISN'T AFFORDABLE!!! We can change this, we can do better, and we make the world better for everyone by doing it. There is a way, we've run the numbers. There is over a TRILLION dollar industry waiting to take off, a boom market that NO ONE has touched. We can create over 2.6 million full-time jobs sustained over the next ten years, add over a trillion dollars to the economy, reduce government expendatures, get these people off the street and into their own homes where they will build equity, AND IT WOULD MAKE US A PROFIT!!! My goal includes reducing total homelessness by over 50% in the next ten year, and completely eliminating unsheltered homelessness. We can do it, and it will cost the government nothing to do it. In fact, they will make money. Check out my channel and see where we are starting.

  • Hello sir I have nothing but respect for you and admiration for your hard work and effort tirelessly that you do, I just saw your video on tv on PBS and seeing you cry made me cry, I've been homeless before and it hurts and this video inspired me to be even more helpful, wow .

  • Bless you
    Seattle is getting so unafordable. Landlords know what they could get from renters … Makes it impossible for a chance to make it. … My & my kid are out this month. No where to go.

  • as rich as america is there should not be one homeless person or hungry

  • What a lively and positive man ..hope all goes well with him

  • Panda sounds like my financial twin. The guy doesn't want to live LOCKED IN A BOX handing over every dime that crosses his hand to somebody else so they can be wealthy.

  • How can I tell my story? I am elderly and technically homeless because I don't have my needs met, in this motel. Been homeless much of my adult life. I founded SEASCAT, which stands for supportive environment for adult survivors of Child Abuse and trauma. I am trying so hard to hang onto what I have and make a difference. But if I don't get more supporting me, I will move out as soon as its warm. I have a non-profit thrift store, where I have a lending library and handouts and I'm trying to find speaking engagements. The bldg isn't heated and I have to move everything because so..
    . Too much, sorry. I can make a video. The phone roams most of the time, but can make another video anywhere tired Wi-Fi.
