Founded in October 2009 to benefit the unhoused and marginally housed who are trying to get back on their feet. Toledo Streets is a street paper, a microenterprise opportunity with a simple program of job training, offering dignity to vendors along with modest income opportunities.



There’s no such thing as small change – that’s our unofficial motto. Your help, at any level in any way, makes a big difference!
