For 20 years, Street Roots has been creating income opportunities for individuals experiencing homeless and poverty by producing a newspaper and other media that are catalysts for change.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2018, Street Roots worked with 700 vendors, and newspaper readers put over $500,000 in their pockets. Street Roots vendors work, and so does Street Roots!
“Street Roots was there when I needed it. Street Roots is still there, and I still need it. I’ve turned a lot of people on to Street Roots who became vendors and are now making money. It’s not about just selling the paper. It’s about being part of the community.” —Michone Nettles, Street Roots vendor
