Channel 10 features Street Sights

As you may know, Street Sights is a local street paper covering issues that affect the homeless community throughout the state of Rhode Island.

Last week Channel 10 (NBC) dropped by a few Street Sights meetings to report on our two year anniversary. The short piece, aired this past Monday, March 9th, mentions the issues covered by Street Sights (like the tent city under the Crawford Street Bridge in Providence), how the paper has given a voice to the homeless, and changed the lives of those involved. The local news coverage was a great way to inform the public about the organization, as well as encourage members of the community to get involved. The Channel 10 video is posted on their website and can be viewed here.
