Grapevine 79 Hits Streets

Red Issue Now on the Streets for Holidays

Support your local Homeless Grapevine vendor during the holiday season by purchasing a copy of the new Issue 79 newspaper. You can always find the Grapevine at the West Side Market or many times downtown around Cleveland State. The paper features news stories and commentaries about voting in Ohio, the hospital discharge policies, and the Resident Council at 2100 Lakeside Shelter. There is a look at the statistics on the poorest city with Census numbers, and a current look at the two organizations that support organizing around welfare issues--the Empowerment Center and Stop Targeting Ohio's Homeless.

Issue 79 has a less controversial poem by the jungle then his last submission and an expanded section on Local News. Kevin did a nice commentary on the release of the new Heading Home report on homelessness which will soon be on the NEOCH website under solutions. There is a page on National News briefs and the overview of the buddy gray memorial down in Cincinnati. As always the Grapevine has the corner on the market for 16 pages of depression. Now available by subscription with a electronic version available as well. Check it out now. Remember that the vendors keep the profits from the sale of the Grapevine--a true microenterprise.
