Why We’re Here
Beat of the Street is a forum where real people can share their real experiences with homelessness. We created the newspaper so that members of our community who often go unheard can share their stories and insights. Through our efforts, we hope to offer opportunities of empowerment along the way.
While homelessness is a struggle many are faced with in the Hartford region, we believe it can be ended through dialogue, collaboration and empathy. But we don’t have all the answers - we see Beat of the Street as the beginning of a conversation on how to improve our community, not the end of it.
