Unsheltered: Voices from the Street Rediscovering Humanity

By Aimmee Kodachian

In the tapestry of life, we occasionally encounter threads that shine with a rare brilliance. Dennis Pitocco is one such luminous thread—a visionary leader and the Founder of 360° Nation. In a world often driven by profit margins, Dennis chose a different path guided by an unwavering mission to rediscover humanity at its best. Over a decade ago, he embarked on this remarkable journey, and in doing so, he has woven a legacy defined by acts of goodness that extend far beyond personal gain.

At the core of 360° Nation, three distinct enterprises bear testament to Dennis’s resolute commitment:

  • BizCatalyst 360° is an award-winning publishing platform that unites thousands of writers across six continents.
  • 360 ° Nation Studios serves as the canvas for powerful, humanity-driven videos that come to life, further amplifying the mission.
  • GoodWorks 360° is a consulting foundation dedicated to providing invaluable support, free of charge, to noble nonprofits worldwide.

My encounter with Dennis was unanticipated, an unexpected intersection of paths that inspired me profoundly. Engaging in a conversation with him, we found common ground in our shared mission—empowering humanity and rekindling the true essence of our shared existence. Even before his involvement in the transformative book project ‘Unsheltered: None of Us Are Home Until All of Us Are Home,’ co-authored with Peggy Willms, Dennis’s dedication to positive change was evident. This endeavor, devoted to illuminating the stories and struggles of the unsheltered population, provided a glimpse into his unwavering commitment to forging alternative paths to create a better world.

Dennis’s dedication to this cause is a guiding light, a testament to the boundless possibilities of positive change. As we embark on this journey through his life and work, his story promises to inspire and illuminate the path forward for humanity.

A: Please share a bit about your background and the journey that led you to rediscover humanity.

D: After spending decades in the international financial services sector, building and selling businesses, my wife Ali and I decided to leave the corporate world altogether to dedicate our time, talent, and treasure to rediscovering humanity. We do that through serving nonprofits from the grass-roots level all the way to the board of director level. We felt (borrowing from the words of Gandhi) that we could ‘in a gentle way, shake the world” for good. If we are serious in our quest to rediscover humanity at its best, we believe that our job is to “walk the talk” today and every day, doing our best to figure out what the world is trying to be – and then help the world be that, be better, and be even more. The world depends on everyone to show up and be present as best we can in our imperfect radiance. And we are blessed to have the opportunity to do so.

A: What inspired the creation of your latest “for good” humanity endeavor, the anthology book entitled “Unsheltered: Voices from the Street,” and what are your goals and aspirations for this project?
