Street Newspaper Offered in Oklahoma City to Help the Homeless

Street Newspaper Offered in Oklahoma City to Help the Homeless

Low income individuals, including the homeless, oftentimes belong to the lower levels of  society. This means that opportunities are limited for them and they are not able to speak out easily.  But, that doesn’t mean they have nothing to say.  In fact, these people have a lot to say, especially with regards to society and how it affects them.

In order to help the homeless and low-income individuals, the Homeless Alliance and students from Vanderbilt University and the University of Oklahoma have launched a newspaper for and by these people. The newspaper is written and sold by the homeless or low-income individuals, and trough this program, they are given employment and the chance to vocalize their ideas and be heard.

Newspapers of this nature are commonly known as street papers, and there are about 43 street papers throughout the country.  The Curbside Chronicle is the first one in Oklahoma and is being published and distributed bi-monthly.
