Drawing on his firsthand experience of being homeless twice, Mark created the website InvisiblePeople.tv, on which he posts raw, unedited testimony of the homeless men, women and children he meets across America. This year, Mark drove over 11,000 miles across the country, meeting homeless individuals and making videos of the people he meets. @home follows Mark as he sets out on his 2010 road tour.
The documentary @home and its multiplatform engagement campaign will raise awareness of homelessness issues and explore what’s working and what’s not in the world of services provided to the homeless. The campaign will bring the importance of finding and funding long-term strategies to reduce homelessness to the general public but is especially focused in reaching educators, health and social service providers, policymakers, and elected officials.
