I met Destiny the day before she was entering a Salvation Army rehab in Winnipeg, Canada. She was out in the rain so we stepped into a metro stop to stay dry.

Destiny grew up in and out of the jail system and fell into addiction. Because she has two kids she is making the smart first step to getting her life back by getting off drugs. Because drugs take over a person's life that choice is not easy. I have a lot of respect for Destiny!

Destiny comes from a good family and says she once lived in a nice house and had everything she needed. Addiction to drugs took her to where she lost her kids and now only has the clothes she is wearing.

The good news is Destiny is conscious of her past and what she needs to do to make a better future. It's a hard road to get off drugs but I believe she will make it!

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.
