• Robyn and Mickey are both 17 years-old and homeless in Ottawa, Canada.

    Robyn and Mickey are both 17 years-old and homeless in Ottawa, Canada. Once Mickey begins to talk, you can tell that these young adults have aged beyond their years. Robyn says that because shelters will not take dogs or allow them all to stay together, that they'd rather stay on the streets sleeping rough. On their first night homeless both of them were stressed and scared. They stayed under a bridge until someone gave them a tent and they now live in the woods. The Salvation Army outreach team took me there, and looked like their sleeping bags and everything they had was soaked from the rain. Clearly, this is no way for people to live. No way for 17 year-old's to live. Very special thanks to Ottawa Salvation Army and Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness. ________________...

  • Annie and Matto are homeless in Ottawa. They are proud to Inuit speak their native language.

    While exploring the streets of Ottawa with Judy Graves, one of Canada's most famous homeless advocates, we happened to meet an adorable mother and son living in a homeless shelter. Annie and Matto are very proud that they are Inuit. They are from Nunavut, which is pretty much on the top of the world. Matto helped explain it to me letting me know it's next to Greenland. During my Canadian road trip in 2011 I fell in love with the aboriginal culture. Such wonderful people with a gorgeous culture that must be respected and can never be forgotten. Annie and Matto speak their original language and share with us a few phrases. Many of you know how much I hate cold weather, but I would visit up North in a heart beat just to learn more about the Inuit people. Aboriginal people come to Canada...

  • Homelessness in Ottawa - A shelter worker's perspective - Lumix GH3

    A video from the perspective of a front line shelter worker. I didn't give much thought on homelessness until I happened to photograph them by accident when I frequently crossed from Gatineau to Ottawa. on a daily basis. When I looked more closely at the pictures I took they spoke to me and had me think about the people dealing with homelessness. If there's something there that makes someone "pause for the cause" I'm good with it. Thanks to Kaila for taking part and being the fighter you are for social causes. Some may or may not like the video, but the intent is to draw attention and think about homelessness. Also mucho thanks to Chantal for your vocals once again on the music despite fighting colds on and off throughout this winter.

  • John is homeless in Ottawa and talks about the increased violence against homeless people

    I was walking in a park near downtown Ottawa, Canada, and started to talk to a small group of homeless people sitting on the lawn. Everyone started to talk about the recent street violence of homeless people being attacked for no reason. John (not his real name) showed me photos he took on his cellphone of a blood stained sidewalk after a 60 year-old man was viciously beaten. Another homeless man a few years back was set on fire. Last few years violence against homeless people has been increasing at an alarming rate in North America. Just today, I was driving one of the most gentle men I have ever met, a kind homeless man in his 60s, who told me about where he can and cannot sleep on the streets. At one point, about a year ago, I found this gentle man after he was released from the hospi...

  • You'd never know Catherine is homeless except for the hat on the sidewalk "asking" for donations.

    I may have never known Catherine was homeless unless there was a hat on the sidewalk "asking" for donations. Funny thing in Canada, homeless people in urban areas don't actually ask for money like they do in the States. That would be considered "aggressive panhandling", and often homeless people are ticketed or arrested. I met Catherine in Ottawa, Canada, while riding around with the Ottawa Salvation Army's outreach team. Catherine has a story she wrote that she wanted to read. She titled it "homelessness and panhandlers: two sides to every story"! It's a powerful story that I hope you take a few minutes to watch as Catherine shares.

Aboriginal people come to Canada's urban cities for various reasons. Sadly, once here, it's often hard for them to find a way to survive. As Cassien told us in Yellowknife [http://bit.ly/H3uCGi], going back home can also be a problem. Annie and Matto have lived in a homeless shelter for over a year. They are on a housing list, but that often takes time. If we are ever going to end homelessness in Canada we must seriously focus on listening to our aboriginal neighbors.

I was walking in a park near downtown Ottawa, Canada, and started to talk to a small group of homeless people sitting on the lawn. Everyone started to talk about the recent street violence of homeless people being attacked for no reason. John (not his real name) showed me photos he took on his cellphone of a blood stained sidewalk after a 60 year-old man was viciously beaten. Another homeless man a few years back was set on fire. Last few years violence against homeless people has been increasing at an alarming rate in North America. Just today, I was driving one of the most gentle men I have ever met, a kind homeless man in his 60s, who told me about where he can and cannot sleep on the streets. At one point, about a year ago, I found this gentle man after he was released from the hospital. His entire body was black and blue. I have never seen anyone beat up so bad. A few kids beat him so bad he was in the hospital for four days. We need to stop violence on homeless people. Hate crime legislation is on and off again, and I am not really sure that is the solution. I believe we need more education so today's youth see homeless people as people. This website helps, but there is so much more work to be done. John is an educated man from a good family, but developed addictions. I admire the courage he has to be open and honest with himself. I sure hope John got that apartment and is working towards sobriety. I am proof that people change for the better. ________________________________________________ Subscribe here: https://www.youtube.com/c/invisiblepeople?sub_confirmation=1 Invisible People’s website: http://invisiblepeople.tv Support Invisible People: https://invisiblepeople.tv/donate On Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/invisiblepeople Invisible People’s Social Media: https://www.youtube.com/invisiblepeople https://twitter.com/invisiblepeople https://www.instagram.com/invisiblepeople https://www.facebook.com/invisiblepeopletv Mark Horvath’s Twitter: https://twitter.com/hardlynormal 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.

UPDATE: Donna is no longer homeless https://youtu.be/F5xtf7-_BhE Donna's story is a perfect example of why we need to listen to our homeless friends. Donna is homeless in Ottawa, Canada. She has serious health issues, yet manages to travel over 7 kilometers every day with her boyfriend collecting cans to raise money to eat, and to fix her RV to get off the streets. One thing I have learned, is people often connect to geographic locations and that's where they want to live. Donna was raised in the Maritimes, a region of Eastern Canada. Her and her boyfriend ended up in Ontario because that's where their RV broke down and they could also get health benefits. As you'll see in this video, Donna pretty much only had one wish: to get back home to look after her mom's grave. Here's the issue: services in Ottawa will never house Donna simply because she doesn't want to live here. In her mind, although it's been some time, she is just passing through. The other challenge is there is no grant funding to help Donna with the repairs on her RV, even though it's not that much money. This type situation is what is often called "gaps in the safety net", but I think it's really because we don't listen or use common sense. To me, it's pretty simple - help Donna and her boyfriend get their RV fixed and get to the Maritimes = two really happy people who....now wait for it...ARE NO LONGER HOMELESS! We did this before you may remember. Thanks to all of you we helped a disabled veteran get his RV out of impound http://invisiblepeople.tv/blog/2010/08/thanks-to-social-media-johnny-will-get-his-home-back/ Local Salvation Army told me it'd be around $500cdn and a few tanks of gas to get Donna's RV repaired and out of the lot (were they are being charged daily) and back to the Maritimes. We are guessing around $800cdn will do it. Ottawa Salvation Army has graciously offered to facilitate logistics if we raise the funds. That means they'll make sure the RV gets fixed the Donna gets off safely, and they'll make sure they are connected on the other end of this journey. Here is the link to our donate page http://invppl.tv/donate. If 8 people give $100 each it's done. If 16 people give $50 each game over. If just 32 of you give $25 we can help make Donna's wish come true and get an elderly homeless woman out of the cold. Please give generously and let's make this happen for Donna. UPDATE: Last night. THANKS TO YOUR BIG HEARTS, we raised $834 to help Donna make her wish come true. The money will be given to the Ottawa Salvation Army, who will help Donna make sure the RV get's fixed and they get on the road. THANK YOU EVERYONE!

Got some free time? Why not invite a panhandler or a homeless to dine with you and have a chat? You just might make their day! Thanks for watching! Subscribe to keep yourself updated! Update February 2015: We've reached out to youth from across Ottawa to help us out. We're now developing an NGO to alleviate poverty and end homelessness. Update March 2016: Castlestone is now to become a non-profit organization! Stone by stone, we build a castle, the castle of their self-esteem. WEBSITE: http://davidq.ca/ FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/DavidHQiu/ FOLLOW ON TWITTER: https://twitter.com/huanwenqiu INSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/huanwenqiu ABOUT ME: http://davidq.ca/about We are teenagers from downtown Ottawa-Gatineau taking actions to eliminate poverty. We encourage others to do the same, may this video inspire you to make a difference! After countless encounters with many lower class families and those who are unfortunate; relationships are the best solution. I believe the greatest poverty isn't financial issues, but being uncared, unloved and left alone; similar to Mother Teresa's quotes. Those who are unprivileged are still humans and regardless what happened in their passed, they still deserve another chance just like us when we make mistakes. Those who are influenced by drugs and alcohol are trying to forget their passed, one quoted "Life hurts". In the end, they have the right to be a human being. This community center/shelter will be a positive place for those under the influence of poverty to get their lives back together! This cause started on June 30th, 2014. Hopefully by June 30th, 2015, we can reach most of Ottawa-Gatineau. We need an army, and we need your support! If you're from Ottawa-Gatineau, email: Info@davidq.ca if you'd like to volunteer or become a member!

I may have never known Catherine was homeless unless there was a hat on the sidewalk "asking" for donations. Funny thing in Canada, homeless people in urban areas don't actually ask for money like they do in the States. That would be considered "aggressive panhandling", and often homeless people are ticketed or arrested. I met Catherine in Ottawa, Canada, while riding around with the Ottawa Salvation Army's outreach team. Catherine has a story she wrote that she wanted to read. She titled it "homelessness and panhandlers: two sides to every story"! It's a powerful story that I hope you take a few minutes to watch as Catherine shares. "Poverty is the worst form of violence." a quote from Mahatma Gandhi. I never heard that quote before, until I listened to Catherine's story. Catherine has been homeless since April, couch surfing wherever she can. When I asked her about her future, she said she tries not to look there. That's what poverty does. It takes away hopes and dreams.
