The Cleveland Street Chronicle special “Wrap Up Homelessness” edition hits the streets


The Cleveland Street Chronicle returns this holiday season with its annual wrapping paper edition, with sheets of holiday wrapping paper designed by formerly homeless local artists. Despite the constraints the pandemic has placed on many of our vendors, the sale of the paper is helping many of them get through the holidays. 

The purpose of the “Wrap Up Homelessness” campaign is to creatively help people who’ve experienced homelessness earn an income during the holidays while celebrating the creative spirit of Street Chronicle vendors and homeless artists in Cleveland. The special wrapping paper edition will be available for sale through the first of the year.

The Cleveland Street Chronicle is an initiative of the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless to amplify the voices of people with lived experience of homelessness and to increase reporting on homelessness and poverty in northeast Ohio. The paper is published quarterly and it is written, purchased for $0.25, and sold by people with lived experience.
