  • 4 questions with this year’s Home For Good Champion of the Year, Mark Horvath!
    my life changed People started to tweet me encouragement and all kinds of support The Invisible People road trip was born Now I have traveled to over 60 cities in the United States and Canada and toured hundreds of homeless services I was honored to keynote the Geneva Forum of Social Change in Switzerland last year I spoke at the State Department and most of all the major conferences like South By Southwest 140 Conference Blogworld and more YouTube gave Invisible People unprecedented exposure allowing me to curate YouTube s homepage for a day Just last year the Canadian Government asked me to visit and help them fight homelessness The year before that the State of Utah invited me to help This week I am off to help the City of San Francisco and HUD But the really cool stuff that keeps me going is the 50 homeless kids in Baton Rouge that didn t have shoes until an hour after my visit In Northwest Arkansas a farmer donated 40 acres of land that is being used to feed 150 low income families a week In Canada a homeless man dying of cancer was reunited with his family because of one of my videos And literally housing programs have started because of Invisible People I honestly didn t decide to do any of this and now that so much impact has happened how can I do anything else 2 Why is social media a powerful tool to help end homelessness Arent Speaking About The biggest shift we ll soon see is social media will force homeless services to view our clients as customers and all control will go to them Homeless services is broken Anyone that doesn t see that has their head in guacamole But we keep playing the same games over and over In all other aspects of business social media has given all the power to the consumer Don t believe me Molly Katchpole a 22 year old nanny was directly responsible for leading a revolt preventing Bank of America from increasing fees Soon all our homeless friends will have this power and homeless services as we know it will be forced to change Too me that s a very good thing I also believe social media can be used for virtual case management and peer to peer support Much of my work in the coming years will be creating ways tech can be used to help our homeless friends help each other Homeless services is so behind on technology HMIS systems are nearly impossible to navigate when data entry could be as easy as updating a Facebook profile Anyone anywhere in the world with internet access can find an empty hotel room anywhere in the world yet a homeless family has to go through the maddening process of guessing availability and being processed for intakes just to be put on a waiting list By adopting technology we could be saving lives and saving money 3 When
