Street Papers Give Homeless Great Opportunity

Throughout the nation, street papers (newspapers made and sold by the homeless community) are selling great! While other mainstream newspapers are struggling big time, street papers are giving great opportunities to the local homeless community. Some individuals are even able to break out of homelessness thanks to the revenue they bring in monthly by selling street papers.
It's a simple concept - a homeless individual can buy the papers for 25 cents each and sell them for a $1. With a growing demand for papers like this, that $1 easily adds up!
Here's a great article from the Nashville Public Radio about the rise in popularity among street papers.
And you can check out these street papers from around the nation:
Street Sense from Washington DC
Street News from New York City
StreetWise from Chicago
Real Change from Seattle
