Publications by and for people who are homeless: A street newspaper is a publication created to increase the public’s awareness of poverty and homeless issues, as well as to provide flexible employment opportunities for homeless people. Most street newspapers provide papers to homeless vendors for 20% to 40% of the cover price, which is usually $1.

The self-employed vendor sells the papers on the street and keeps the money he or she makes. Street newspapers now operate in 47 cities throughout North America and in dozens of other cities in Europe, Africa, Australia and the Caribbean.
