Cincinnati Joins in the Distribution of Street Newspaper

Published in Cincinnati Homeless Grapevine, a precursor to Streetvibes

This will be the first issue of the Homeless Grapevine to include news about the homeless from Cincinnati. Approximately 21,000 people experience homelessness each year in the Greater Cincinnati Area. There are a dozen shelters, both small and large, each trying to fill some gape in the housing area.

By sharing resources and trying to educate the public, we all work together and do the best we can to end homelessness. In 1984, due to mutual interests, local providers an homeless people came together to form the Greater Cincinnati Coalition for the Homeless: a grassroots advocacy, organizing, and education group.
