The mission of Street Sense is to empower the homeless and educate the public about issues of homelessness, utilizing a bi-weekly newspaper as the vehicle.
Street Sense works to address the challenges of homelessness in a unique and innovative way - by providing a low-barrier employment opportunity for homeless men and women to earn an income and move toward financial self-sufficiency. Homeless "vendors" make a personal financial investment in the paper, purchasing each issue for 35 cents and selling the paper for one dollar, earning on average $45 per day. In addition to the economic opportunities afforded by Street Sense, the organization gives those facing homelessness a voice; about half of the articles in Street Sense are written by homeless and formerly homeless vendors.
