Mission Statement: Street Roots creates income opportunities for people experiencing homelessness and poverty by producing a newspaper and other media that are catalysts for individual and social change.
In 2010, Street Roots helped house more than 50 individuals and prevent more than 250 individuals from experiencing homelessness through the stability of the newspaper.We also worked with more than 400 individuals in the Portland region to improve their quality of life.
We’ve connected thousands of people to critical resources with the Rose City Resource Guide and delivered Portlanders a unique brand of investigative journalism and voices from the community, including the streets.
Street Roots is proud members of the North American Street Newspaper Association, the International Network of Street Papers and the Society of Professional Journalists in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
