Overview

Street Sense Media (SSM) is an evolving, mid-size, non-profit media company committed to ending chronic homelessness by providing economic opportunities and powerful forms of self-expression to men and women living in extreme poverty. We work in a collaborative, dynamic, and collegial environment for and with the people the organization serves. We work in partnership with other organizations to advance and achieve our mission.

In collaboration with persons who are homeless, SSM hosts workshops. Content created in these workshops is intended to build an audience around which thoughtful discussion and community can be built to address and end chronic homelessness in the metro DC region.
