Cody met a girl. They fell in love. He relocated to live with her. Everything was going fine until Cody left for a three day trip for work. When he returned, Cody says he walked in on his girlfriend cheating on him with his boss’s son. Cody reacted out of anger and passion with the end result of him ending up on the streets of Chicago homeless.
Cody tries to sell his artwork to get enough money to get a room for a night or two. When he can get a room he can clean up enough to look for work, but he keeps getting denied employment because he is homeless.
Cody says that on weekends, a lot of people come around and give out food but there is no help to get off the streets and out of homelessness.

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.
