Goals Listed on the Front of the New Homeless Grapevine Issue #1:

1. Provide a forum for homeless people to share their opinions and ideas on issues that may or may not be specific to being homeless.

2. Share information for the homeless--about homeless rights, housing, legislative issues, maybe jobs, support services, etc.

3. Provide those not homeless with a greater understanding about what homelessness means and what it costs.

4. Provide income and foster responsibility to those selling the paper.

5. Provide a medium for those in need of skills training to have a hands on experience in production of a newspaper.

6. Empower the dispossessed: homeless and housed [alike].
