The Coalition on Homelessness includes three work groups Civil Rights, Families and Immigration, and Right to a Roof that work with volunteers and homeless or formerly homeless people to determine the content of each issue. Offer-Westort coordinates and "checks for spelling."
Much of what goes into print in street newspapers is "high quality journalism that is being recognized in their communities and nationally," according to Freeze. And while the mission of the paper hasn't changed in 20 years, the material, as Ely says, has gotten better because of increased awareness and circulation.
When asked where Offer-Westort wants to see the paper in 20 years, he said he'd like to see it "going out of business because homelessness has ended."
