About Homelessness

“Underheard” Homeless Given Twitter Voice

An unusual project in New York has given four homeless men an international voice.

Many homeless men and women feel ignored, invisible and unheard as people walk by them each day. Underheard in New York set out to help homeless residents in New York City speak for themselves. They provided DannyDerrickAlbert and Carlos each with their own mobile phone, a month of unlimited text messaging and a Twitter account.

These men found their voices by texting their thoughts, feelings and actions to Twitter.
