Since I started InvisiblePeople.tv the National Alliance to End Homelessness has supported me. A few years back, during my first national road trip, I had a chance to visit their offices and interview Steve Berg, Vice President for Programs and Policy. My interview with Steve was one of the first live streams I ever tried to produce and you can watch it here. To put this in perspective, in 2009 I was this crazy guy who just lost his house to foreclosure and was driving the country using social media to scream real loud about homelessness and poverty. At the time, many agencies in Washington would not return my calls (although today things are different), but NAEH took me seriously and accepted me always encouraging me to keep going.
I have been honored by NAEH to be asked to speak at their conferences. At each conference I tried to get a moment with Nan Roman, President of the National Alliance to End Homelessness, but as to be expected her time is very limited. This last week I was at 2011 National Conference on Ending Family Homelessness and as luck and persistence would have it, I was able to record a short interview with Nan.
Nan Roman opened up the conference by highlighting National Alliance to End Homelessness' recent report State of Homelessness in America 2011. I wish I had the bandwidth to stream her powerful speech like I have in past years, it was just not possible this year. For this short interview I asked Nan to sum up the report on State of Homelessness in America.
Please help support National Alliance to End Homelessness and all the great work they do.
