The Cleveland Street Chronicle was published last week. The vendors began selling the paper especially at the West Side Market and downtown. We have a nice story about the changes in Ohio law regarding how to improve services to people with a mental illness. Each of the vendors wrote a story for the paper about their experiences or about their history.
We have a nice story about the history of the small town of Toronto Ohio and some wonderful pictures by Cindy. The Cosgrove Center is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and Sarah wrote up a story about this essential service in the community. There is a story about homeless veteran's housing, and one about the publication of the Street Card. We have a profile of NEOCH Board member, Larry Davis and one about how hard it is to get bed rest in the women's shelter.
Buzzy published a poem, and many of the vendors published commentaries about poverty and family issues. There are stats on domestic violence, and really nice profile of one of the Street Voices speaker, Silk, who got into housing and regularly attends the Homeless Congress. Overall, it is a really interesting paper with a good mix of positive stories with challenges facing the homeless population. There is always a hefty dose of opinions from the street. We hope that you will pick it up when you are downtown or at the West Side Market.
