The video is by Rethink Homelessness, an initiative dedicated to finding solutions to the problem of homelessness in Central Florida communities.
What comes to our minds when we think of homeless people? Its images like uneducated, jobless, possibly criminal wrapped up in our idea that these are morally incorrect people.
But that’s not the reality. Rethink Homelessness believes, “Since the recession began, the face of homelessness has been changing. From school children to the elderly, from the barely employed to the victims of abuse-- homelessness can affect anyone...”
In short, the homeless are just like everyone else who have fallen upon hard times.
In a bid to create awareness they asked homeless people in the city to write down a fact about themselves that other people wouldn't know on a piece of cardboard.
Their stories will shake you up.
