Theo Henderson fell into homelessness the way most people do: he wasn’t making enough money to afford the rent. At the same time, he also suffered from an illness that put him on a path to the streets. Henderson moved from an apartment in Chinatown to his car, from his car to motels and eventually the sidewalk.
A former school teacher who lost his job during the Great Recession, Theo is homeless in Los Angeles, yet he prefers to use the term unhoused. Theo survives by tutoring kids in the park and teaching martial arts.
We The Unhoused is a podcast produced and hosted by Theo where he lifts the voices and struggles of unhoused people and advocates in Los Angeles.
Invisible Stories is a mini-doc series that goes beyond the rhetoric, statistics, political debates, and limitations of social services to examine poverty in America via a medium that audiences of all ages understand, and can’t ignore.
