About Us

Founded in 1994, the Real Change is an award-winning street newspaper that provides immediate employment opportunity to homeless and low-income people throughout the Pacific Northwest. Highly regarded as the leading street newspaper in North America, Real Change provides a low-barrier employment opportunity to an average of 250 homeless and low-income individuals each month while challenging the structures that create poverty.

Real Change offers hope and opportunity to those who are economically marginalized and often have limited options for legitimate employment. To read more about the Real Change Vendors who earn income by selling the street newspaper, please read profiles published here. We envision a just, caring and inclusive community, where people are no longer marginalized by racism and classism and have the means to live with dignity.
