[Intersection Podcast] Episode 019: Invisible People

Hosted by Bobby Rettew, MA

Mark Horvath Headshot

Are many Americans one paycheck away from homelessness? Well, after the 2008 financial crash, I assumed yes.  A Jan 20, 2018 Marketwatch article says that millions of Americans are one paycheck away from homelessness? Just 39% of Americans say they have enough savings to cover a $1,000 emergency room visit or car repair. Can you identify with this statistic? Mark Horvath has a different viewpoint.

I met Mark in 2012 downtown Chicago at a conference where he was telling the InvisiblePeople.tv story. He has been interviewing individuals who are homeless across the United States for years. As he told more stories, his YouTube channel just grew and grew becoming one of the top channels on YouTube, even being feature on the homepage. When I met him, GM just became a sponsor and presented him with a SUV so he could continue traveling and telling more stories.

Mark is a special person, one with passion and a true desire to bring the stories of the homeless population to the forefront. His passion comes with experience! Once homeless, he understands first hand how America’s forgotten are more than just people…they are a part of this great American fabric we call home.
