What’s It Like?

February 10, 2009

What’s it like to be homeless? How do people end up on the streets? How do they survive? The answers aren’t always what you’d expect and are sometimes worse than you thought.

Mark Hovath has been asking these questions on the streets of Los Angeles and more recently, right here in Phoenix. He shot this video of 22 year old Mark just outside the gates of Phoenix Rescue Mission.

He has a unique perspective because he himself was homeless. Now he shares his story by blogging for and shares the stories of those who are currently homeless on

We had the chance to meet him last week and he’ll be the first to tell you it’s not about him. It’s about showing people what it really means to be homeless and waking them up to get them involved. The content can be hard to take, but so is living without a home.
