New Grapevine Out

News of the Streets or Soul Crushing Depression??

The new Homeless Grapevine is out and on the streets. The best (and only) regularly published newspaper entirely dedicated to homelessness and poverty has a new edition available. The Grapevine was the only media to attend the health care hearing at Trinity Cathedral, and the story appears in the new Grapevine. We feature a story of the Labre project at John Carroll University, and the story shocking decrease in Domestic Violence shelter beds in Cuyahoga County.

There are four letters about a change at Laura's Home written by former staff and clients. It seems that the change in leadership and the movement of Angeline Christian Home into the shelter has had a negative effect on the shelter. The Grapevine editorial board is asking for reform and oversight of this privately funded shelter.

We translate a letter to Frank Jackson from bureaucratic language into English. There is the summary of local and national news about homeless people, and a special maze by Copy Editor Tanya Goff. So, go get the latest Grapevine at the West Side Market or other locations in the Downtown area. We have had 75 issues to learn, and we are finally starting to get it right.
