Street Roots


To create income opportunities for people experiencing homelessness and poverty by producing a newspaper and other media that are catalysts for individual and social change.

Bottom Line for Portland

Each week, Street Roots produces a newspaper; vendors purchase almost 10,000 copies for 25 cents and sell them for $1, giving them the tools they need to earn a living.

“I like selling Street Roots because it gives me an opportunity to earn my money. I like being part of the Street Roots community and the camaraderie, its goals towards social justice. Street Roots rocks!”

—Daniel, Street Roots vendor
