One Step Away

One Step Away is Philadelphia’s first newspaper produced by those without homes for those with homes. The monthly tabloid includes news about homelessness and affordable housing as well as creative writing, photographs, illustrations and other content produced by those experiencing homelessness or joblessness. Street vendors who have no job or shelter buy the newspaper for 25 cents, then distribute it on the street for a $1 donation, keeping the difference.

One Step Away is available at 55 N. Broad Street, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am-1pm.
