The Make Them Visible Foundation [MTVF] raises investments and awareness for organizations fighting poverty and homelessness. MTVF addresses the need for a collaborative movement where organizations work together to secure funds and harness change. 



We leverage the power of film to share stories. Check out our Effie Award winning Make Them Visible short film. It’s only 3.5 minutes and will change how you see the homeless. This video was originally produced as a social experiment, geared at revealing how we, as a society, see our homeless neighbors.

Our society is obsessed with fictional stories and prioritizes them above real ones. MTVF launched a social media campaign that pits the stories of fictional TV characters to stories of real individuals experiencing homelessness. Watch the emotionally disruptive video that captures the road to homelessness which is complex, often devastating, and yet, not void of hope.



The Make Them Visible Foundation (MTVF) is proud to serve as the fiscal sponsor for the film Rooting for Roona, produced by CurleyStreet Media. Rooting for Roona is a documentary that fights for the health of children suffering social inequities, and captures the incredible story of Baby Roona Begum.
