A D.C. newspaper with a purpose
Through out the D.C. Metro area, we have several choices of newspapers, but one newspaper benefits the local homeless community with every sale.
The writers, photographers and vendors of Street Sense, are all homeless themselves, and vendors purchase copies of the newspaper and when selling the papers on the street, get to keep what ever the buyer purchases the paper for.
The organization where Street Sense is headquartered, provides the homeless employment opportunities, job training and an array of opportunities for self expression. The media Street Sense produces helps educate our community about the issue of homelessness.
