Formerly homeless man is harnessing social media through his nonprofit, Invisible People, and uniting those in need with available resources.

"Nonprofit groups, aid organizations and advocates are increasingly using social media to connect with the homeless. The homeless also put a high value on the devices that keep them connected. A 2011 study through the University of Southern California School of Social Work found that 62 percent of homeless teens had a phone, a data plan and that they viewed the device as important for them as food. While the study focused on teens, homeless advocate Mark Horvath says those numbers likely apply to the adult homeless as well." -- Chandra Johnson, the Deseret News
