As I commute to and from my job in Center City I pass by many people. Some of them are Street Vendors for "One Step Away" - "Greater Philadelphia's First Newspaper Produced By Those Without Homes For Those With Homes".
These vendors are, or were homeless. They sell the paper for a dollar donation, this helps bring purpose, dignity... hope to these individuals. This morning I stopped for a moment to wish one of them a Happy New Year and listened to his story. At 62 years of age he had been homeless for three years but "One Step Away" has afforded him the opportunity to get back on his feet and into a home.
I encourage you - whether you are in Center City Philadelphia or some other metropolitan area to not only search out these individuals but to stop and talk to them and please offer some support. You may find out more by visiting "One Step Away"
